00:04:42 I'VE BEEN HOMELESS NOW FOR ABOUT THREE YEARS AND I'M ALSO IN COLLEGE
00:04:50 AND I WANTED TO ASK A QUESTION BECAUSE I'VE BEEN WANTING TO RUN FOR
00:04:56 CHICAGO ALDERMAN AND I'VE CALLED THE BOARD OF ELECTIONS, I HAVEN'T
00:05:01 REALLY GOT A STRAIGHTFORWARD ANSWER BUT IT'S VERY IMPORTANT TO ME, SO
00:05:05 I TALKED TO TWO ALDERMEN LAST TIME, I DIDN'T GET A SPECIFIC ANSWER
00:05:11 BUT I APPRECIATE THEM GIVING ME SOME INFORMATION, SO IF ANYBODY KNOWS
00:05:15 HOW I WOULD GO ABOUT THAT, I THINK THE ELECTIONS, THEY TOLD ME START
00:05:18 NEXT YEAR, SO I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO RUN.
00:05:22 I'M MAJORING IN POLITICAL SCIENCE AND A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE BEEN
00:05:27 COMPLAINING ABOUT THE GOVERNMENT BUT I JUST WANTED TO THANK THE
00:05:32 GOVERNMENT FOR ALL OF THEIR ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS, THEY HAVE HELPED
00:05:36 BOTH ME AND MY FAMILY.
00:05:37 I WANTED TO THANK THEM FOR GIVING ME A ROOF OVER MY HEAD WHEN I
00:05:45 DIDN'T HAVE ONE AND FOOD AND I ALSO WANTED TO THANK THEM FOR PAYING

00:07:29 HOW ARE YOU TODAY?
00:07:30 I WANTED TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR WORDS YESTERDAY OF ENCOURAGEMENT TO
00:07:34 THE DREAMERS AND TO OUR STUDENTS IN THE CITY OF CHICAGO THAT THIS IS
00:07:39 A SANCTUARY CITY AND IT'S GOING TO CONTINUE TO BE A SANCTUARY CITY
00:07:42 AND THAT THEY ARE GOING TO BE SAFE IN THE CITY OF CHICAGO.
00:07:46 I'M HERE TODAY TO TALK ABOUT A RESOLUTION THAT I'M HOPING THAT WILL
00:07:52 BE INTRODUCED TODAY REGARDING THE 800 THOUSAND YOUNG PEOPLE WHO
00:07:56 ARRIVED TO THE U.S. AS CHILDREN WHO HAVE ALREADY PASSED AN EXTENSIVE
00:08:01 FBI BACKGROUND CHECK AND HAVE ALREADY RECEIVED TWO YEAR
00:08:08 DEFERMENT, ARE PAYING TAXES AND ARE LIVING LEGALLY RIGHT NOW AND THE
00:08:15 MAYOR THROUGH HIS HENCHMAN, JEFF SESSIONS HAS DECIDED TO RESCIND
00:08:20 DACA AND I'M CALLING ON THE CITY OF CHICAGO TO PASS THIS RESOLUTION
00:08:25 AND TO STAND UP TO THE TRUMP AND EVIL PEOPLE THAT ARE -- THE RACISTS
00:08:32 THAT WANT THE MAKE AMERICA 11:10:16
00:08:33 WHITE AGAIN, AND I THINK THAT WE SHOULD
00:08:40 ALL STAND UP AND SAY NO TO THEM, AND IN REGARDS TO SANCTUARY CITY,
00:08:46 ALL OF MY ALDERMEN, SOME OF YOU ARE MY COMRADES, AND I
00:08:53 WANT TO SAY TO ALL OF YOU, THAT PLEASE STAND UP AND HELP THE MAYOR AT
00:08:59 THIS TIME TO IF THEY WANT TO COME AFTER THE SANCTUARY CITY, THEN
00:09:03 LET'S NOT SEND THEM ANY MONEY TO THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT BECAUSE WE
00:09:06 SEND THEM MORE THAN WE GET BACK, SO IF WE DON'T SEND IT TO THEM, THEN
00:09:11 THEY CAN'T FAKE IT AWAY FROM US, SO I WANT YOU TO THINK ABOUT SUING
00:09:16 THE PRESIDENT AND WHOEVER ELSE WE NEED TO DO IN ORDER TO STAND UP FOR
00:09:20 OUR IMMIGRANT FAMILIES AND TO KEEP OUR CHILDREN AND OUR FAMILIES SAFE
00:09:25 IN THE CITY OF CHICAGO, SO WE HELPED DRAFT THIS RESOLUTION AND WE
00:09:31 HOPE TODAY THAT YOU WILL INTRODUCE IT AND HOPEFULLY SUSPEND THE RULES
00:09:35 AND LET'S PASS THIS THING BECAUSE WE REALLY NEED TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN.
00:09:38 THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
00:09:41 [APPLAUSE].
00:09:42 >> THANK YOU, MS. LASONO, THE NEXT SPEAKER IS EVANGELHO YANUBIAN.
00:09:51 >> HELLO, GREETINGS, MY NAME IS EVE ANGEL YANUBIAN, KIDNAPPED FROM
00:09:58 THE CONTINENT OF AFRICA, AND [INAUDIBLE] ACCORDING TO THE UNITED
00:10:02 NATIONS AND THE VEST CONTINUAL STILL EXIST TODAY, THE PREVIOUS
00:10:09 PRESIDENTS, IT WAS NOT THEIR FAULT, THERE WAS NO REPARATIONS DURING
00:10:14 ACTIVE DEVELOPMENT, RELIEF AND EDUCATION OF ALIEN MINDS UNDER THE AGE
00:10:19 OF 31 AND FROM CRIMES THAT ARE NOT FEDERAL, [INAUDIBLE] SLAVERY LAWS
00:10:27 FROM DECEMBER, 1865 FOLLOWED BY U.S. LAWS OF JIM CROW THAT LASTED
00:10:33 MANY YEARS WERE PASSED TO KEEP THE STATUS OF AMERICAN BORN NEGROES
00:10:39 DOWN, THEY DO NOT HAVE A FELLOW TONGUE NATIONALITY AND HAVE NEVER
00:10:44 BEEN MADE WHOLE, BLACKS ARE WITHOUT SANCTUARY AND AT THE BOTTOM OF
00:10:48 ALL THE AREAS OF HUMAN ENDEAVOR, YET FORMER PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA
00:10:56 HAD TO RELIEF OR EDUCATION FOR AFRICAN MINORS UNDER THE AGE OF 31 AND
00:11:02 AMNESTY OF ANY FEDERAL CRIME THAT'S NOT A FEDERAL CRIME, NO
00:11:06 GOVERNMENT LEG UP BUT PULL YOURSELF UP WHICH WOULD BE POSSIBLE IF IT
00:11:09 WAS NOT FOR LAWS THAT PUT CONDITIONS OF LIFE THAT MAKE IT HARD FOR
00:11:13 AMERICAN BORN BLACKS TO FUNCTION IN WHOLE OR IN PART WHICH IS DEFINED
00:11:19 AS GENOCIDE, THE KIRK COUNTY BOARD HAS IDENTIFIED COMMUNITIES I THINK
00:11:24 COLLUDING INGLEWOOD, 398 YEARS LATER, LAW ENFORCEMENT HAVE
00:11:29 STIGMATIZED BLACK AS DOCUMENTED GANG MEMBERS UNABLE TO LIVE OUT THEIR
00:11:33 DREAMS IN THE LAND OF THEIR BOTH LIKE UNDOCUMENTED DACA RECIPIENTS
00:11:38 CAN DO.
00:11:39 IN CONCLUSION, ILLEGAL SHOULD NOT HAVE LAWS THAT AMERICAN BORN AND
00:11:43 NATURALIZED CITIZENS PAY FOR BUT DO NOT HAVE.
00:11:47 WHY SHOULD THEY HAVE FREE EDUCATION FROM FREE SCHOOL TO GRADUATE
00:11:53 SCHOOL WITHOUT GRADE REQUIREMENTS AND CITIZENS TOLD IF THEY ARE MALE,
00:11:56 THEY CAN GO TO JR. COLLEGE, YOU HAVE TO GET A B AVERAGE, AMERICAN
00:12:00 BORN STUDENTS ARE DROWNING IN STUDENT LOAN DEBT AND ILLEGALS GET A
00:12:04 FREE PASS TO GRADUATE SCHOOLS AND THE BEST JOBS.
00:12:07 THIS IS FUNDAMENTALLY UNFAIR AND SHOULD BE UNCONSTITUTIONAL, THE
00:12:12 GOVERNMENT IS DEPENDING ON THEM AS A WORKFORCE WHILE THEIR OWN
00:12:15 CITIZENS ARE UNEMPLOYED.
00:12:16 DACA'S GREW UP IN AMERICA, WHY ARE THEY SO MUCH SMARTER THAN AMERICAN
00:12:22 BORN BLACKS OR SO IT DUE TO SANCTUARY AND PUBLIC HOUSING AND LEGAL
00:12:29 SERVICE USING TAX DOLLARS TO DEFEND THEM OF LAWS OF ENTRY THAT ALL
00:12:34 COUNTRIES HAVE, WE WANT CHICAGO AS A SANCTUARY CITY TO ASK CONGRESS
00:12:39 DURING THIS NEXT SIX MONTHS TO ADD AFRICAN AMERICAN MINORS TO THE
00:12:43 DREAM ACT BECAUSE FOREIGN BORN BLACKS, DACA'S AND THEIR FAMILIES HAVE
00:12:47 CONTRIBUTED TO MAKING THEM AN ENDANGERED SPECIES DUE TO LAW THAT IS
00:12:52 HAVE GIVEN ILLEGAL GOVERNMENT [INAUDIBLE]
00:12:55 >> THANK YOU, YOUR TIME IS UP.
00:12:57 >> THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMMENTS, THE NEXT SPEAKER IS ASHLEY GAVAN
00:13:05 RAMOS.
00:13:06 [APPLAUSE].
00:13:07 >> GOOD MORNING, MY NAME IS ASHLEY AND I'M A SOPHOMORE AT DOMINICAN
00:13:12 UNIVERSITY, I'M THE YOUTH REPRESENT ON THE BOARD OF [INAUDIBLE]
00:13:15 NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION, I'M HERE TO COMMENT ON THE AFFORDABLE
00:13:19 REQUIREMENT ORDINANCE PILOT AREA THAT THE CITY IS PROPOSING CALLED THE
00:13:23 MILWAUKEE CORRIDOR, FIRST I WANT TO SAY I'M HAPPY THE CITY IS TRYING
00:13:26 TO FIND A SOLUTION TO STOP THE DISPLACEMENT OF FAMILIES AND
00:13:33 DENITRIFYING COMMUNITIES, SINCE 2005, 19 THOUSAND LATIN PEOPLE HAVE
00:13:37 BEEN DISPLACED FROM LOGAN SQUARE ACCORDING TO THE U.S. CENSUS, THE
00:13:43 PEOPLE BEING DISPLACED ARE LATIN EAST FAMILIES LIKE MINE THAT ARE IN
00:13:48 SEARCH FOR AFFORDABLE APARTMENTS THAT
00:13:49 HAVE THREE TO FOUR BEDROOMS, THIS
00:13:52 NEW SOLUTION WON'T HELP FAMILIES UNLESS THEIR INCENTIVES FOR
00:13:56 DEVELOPERS TO BUILD AFFORDABLE HOUSING THAT ARE 3 AND 4 BEDROOMS,
00:14:02 ONLY 24 THREE BEDROOM UNITS HAVE BEEN BUILT SINCE 2007, 0 HAVE BEEN
00:14:08 BUILT THROUGH THE ARO, UNLESS THERE'S AN INCENTIVE FOR FAMILY SIZE
00:14:12 UNITS TO BE BUILT F, THIS PILOT WILL NOT HELP FAMILIES WHO ARE
00:14:18 DISPLACED.
00:14:19 WHAT USE IS 15% OR 20% AFFORDABLE REQUIREMENT IF A DEVELOPER IS ONLY
00:14:23 BUILDING STUDIOS AND ONE BEDROOMS.
00:14:26 FOR EXAMPLE, I LIVE NEAR DIVERSITY AND MASK WHERE ALDERMAN MILEY
00:14:32 SANTIAGO IS SUPPORTING A DEVELOPER WHO'S BUILDING 125 UNITS AND ONE
00:14:37 BEDROOMS, 4K DIVERSITY PARTNERS PLANS TO HAVE 125 UNITS BUILT AND
00:14:42 AGREED TO PROVIDE 25% AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROVIDED UNDER THE ARO, THIS
00:14:49 WON'T FIT FAMILIES INCLUDING THREE TO FOUR BEDROOM APARTMENTS, THESE
00:14:53 ARE CALLED JR. APARTMENTS, THEY WILL NOT FIT THE NEIGHBORHOODS.
00:14:59 IT IS DEVELOPMENT LIKE THESE THAT ARE TEARING MY COMMUNITY APART, DID
00:15:03 YOU KNOW THE MOST ACCURATE PREDICTOR OF A CHILD'S HEALTH AND
00:15:07 EDUCATION OUTCOME IS WHETHER OR NOT THE CHILD HAS A STABLE HOME?
00:15:10 WE ASK THE CITY COUNCIL TO TAKE THIS MATTER SERIOUSLY, GENTRIFICATION
00:15:15 HURTS CHILDREN AND FAMILIES AND CREATES MORE SEGREGATION.
00:15:18 WE NEED OUR ALDERMAN AND MAYOR TO DO WHAT IS RIGHT, WE ASK THE
00:15:24 ARO PILOTS INCLUDING INCENTIVES FOR DEVELOPERS TO BUILD FOR FAMILY, I
00:15:27 WANT TO MAKE A CONNECTION OF THE HOUSING INSTABILITY AND HOW IT
00:15:33 AFFECTS THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS, WHEN A FAMILY IS DISPLACED, IT MEANS A
00:15:36 CHILD HAS TO MOVE, WHEN THERE'S NO HOUSING FOR FAMILIES, THERE ARE NO
00:15:43 FAMILIES TO SEND TO SCHOOL, WE WORRY ABOUT THE 20TH DAY OF SCHOOL
00:15:48 WHEN WE SEE HOW MANY KIDS WILL BE ENROLLED IN THE SCHOOL YEAR, WE
00:15:54 NEED CHICAGO TO FUND SCHOOLS CORRECTLY, WE ASK THE CITY TO PASS THE
00:15:59 TIF SURPLUS ORDINANCE TO FUND OUR SCHOOLS AND PROMOTE HAPPY, HEALTHY
00:16:04 DIVERSE COMMUNITIES BY PROVIDING STABLE, AFFORDABLE HOUSING FOR
00:16:06 FAMILIES AND BY FUNDING OUR SCHOOLS THE RIGHT WAY.
00:16:08 THANK YOU.
00:16:09 >> THANK YOU, MS. RAMOS.
00:16:12 THE NEXT SPEAKER IS MARK KAPLAN.
00:16:17 MARK KAPLAN IS THE NEXT SPEAKER.
00:16:30 GOING ONCE -- ALRIGHT, THE NEXT SPEAKER IS LUELLA.
00:16:31 >> LE'S HERE.
00:16:39 >> SORRY.
00:16:55 I'M CEDING MY TIME TO G2 BROWN.
00:17:03 >> GOOD MORNING, MY NAME IS G2 GROWN, I'M THE KEN WOOD COMMUNITY
00:17:09 OAKLAND COMMUNITY ORGANIZATION, ALSO THE ORGANIZATION OF JOURNEY FOR
00:17:12 JUSTICE AND LIGHTS.
00:17:14 RIGHT NOW, AS WE SIT HERE, THERE'S AN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ON DIVERSITY
00:17:20 IN ASHLAND CALLED AGAZIES WHERE EVERY TEACHER HAS A TEACHER AID,
00:17:25 WHERE THERE ARE TWO FULLY STOCKED COMPUTER LABS, WHERE THERE ARE
00:17:30 AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS THAT RIVAL GIRLS AND BOYS CLUB, IT HAS A
00:17:38 LIBRARY, BUT RIGHT NOW, THERE'S A SCHOOL CALLED MOLISAN ON 44TH AND
00:17:42 KING DRIVE WHERE THERE ARE 42 KINDERGARTNERS IN ONE CLASS, WHERE
00:17:47 THERE'S ONE TEACHER AID IN THE ENTIRE BUILDING, WHERE PARENTS HAVE TO
00:17:54 WAGE A THREE YEAR CAMPAIGN TO GET A PART TIME SPANISH INSTRUCTOR AND
00:17:58 THEREFORE LOST THEIR LIBRARY.
00:18:00 THE POINT I'M MAKING TO YOU BROTHERS AND SISTERS IS THAT THE PROBLEM
00:18:03 IN PUBLIC EDUCATION IS NOT BAD TEACHERS, IT'S NOT CHILDREN WITHOUT
00:18:08 GOALS, IT'S NOT DISINTERESTED INTERCITY PARENTS BUT IT'S STRUCTURAL
00:18:12 INEQUITY, IT'S THE FACT THAT WE HAVE REFUSED TO HAVE THE BRAVERY TO
00:18:20 CHALLENGE THE MANDATE OF BROWN V. BOARD, AND AS A PERSON WHO WORKED
00:18:24 WITH CHILDREN FOR 25 YEARS OF MY LIFE WHO A HAS OFFICIATED FUNERALS
00:18:28 WITHOUT BEING A PUBLIC OFFICIAL THAT IF WE DON'T CONFRONT THE ISSUE
00:18:33 WITH EQUITY, THEN WHAT WE ARE DOING IS WE ARE PUTTING BAND-AIDS ON A
00:18:38 BULLET WOUND, WE CANNOT CHARTER SCHOOL OUR WAY OUT OF THIS, WE CANNOT
00:18:43 CLOSE SCHOOLS OUR WAY OUT OF THIS.
00:18:46 WE CANNOT IGNORE THE FACT THAT WHEN PARENTS SAY THEY ARE BEING HARMED
00:18:51 BY PARTICULAR POLICIES, THAT THIS IS NOT POLITICAL.
00:18:55 I REPRESENT A COMMUNITY ORGANIZATION WITH A THOUSAND MEMBERS, MOBSTER
00:18:58 OF OUR MEMBER, MR. MAYOR, HAS AN ANNUAL FAMILY INCOME OF ABOUT 37
00:19:03 THOUSAND DOLLARS, THE WORKING POOR.
00:19:05 I'M THE PERSON THAT THEY COME TO WHEN THEY SAY THERE ARE 47 CHILDREN
00:19:11 IN MY CLASS, WE HAD A GREAT TEACHER, SHE GOT CUT, SO WHAT I WOULD SAY
00:19:17 TO YOU, CITY COUNCIL, THERE WAS AN AGREEMENT TO EXPAND 22 SUSTAINABLE
00:19:22 COMMUNITY SCHOOLS THAT WAS A COMMUNITY DEMAND PUT IN THE CHICAGO
00:19:28 TEACHER UNION CONTRACT, WE FORCEFULLY DEMAND THAT THAT INITIATIVE IS
00:19:33 SUPPORTED AND IMPLEMENTED.
00:19:35 THERE ARE CITIES LIKE CINCINNATI WHERE YOU CAN SEE WHERE COMMUNITY
00:19:40 SCHOOLS WORK, WHERE PEOPLE DON'T HAVE TO USE SELECTIVE ENROLLMENT
00:19:44 TRICK, THEY DON'T HAVE TO PUSH OUT CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS IN
00:19:47 ORDER TO MAKE THEIR RESULTS LOOK BETTER, IN CINCINNATI, THE
00:19:52 OPPORTUNITY GOT BETWEEN BLACK STUDENTS AND WHITE STUDENTS FROM 2003
00:19:56 HAS SHRUNK FROM 17% TO 3%, THAT'S MY TIME, THANK YOU VERY MUCH, WE
00:20:03 CAN DO SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITY SCHOOLS NOW.
00:20:06 [APPLAUSE].
00:20:07 >> THE NEXT SPEAKER IS LUELLA PICKET.
00:20:27 >> GOOD MORNING, EVERYBODY.
00:20:30 MY QUESTION IS FOR THE MAYOR, I'M SORRY, MY QUESTION IS FOR OUR MAYOR
00:20:37 AND IT IS -- YOU SAID THAT THE SCHOOL WOULD BE FULLY FUNDED AND YOU
00:20:44 SIGNED A CONTRACT WITH THE CTU AGENCY TO 20-50 SUBSTANTIAL COMMUNITY
00:20:53 SCHOOLS, I'M NOT GOING TO GO TOO MUCH FURTHER BECAUSE THE GENTLEMAN
00:20:57 IN FRONT OF ME, HE TOOK ALL MY BULLET POINTS, BUT MY COMMENT BY ME
00:21:09 BEING A GRANDMOTHER AND BY ME BEING A WOMAN OF COLOR, WHAT HAS
00:21:15 BOTHERED ME IS THAT MOST OF THE SCHOOLS THAT HAVE BEEN CUT, THEY SEEM
00:21:20 TO HAVE BEEN CUT FROM THE BLACK COMMUNITIES.
00:21:26 YOU'RE NOT GIVING THE LITTLE PEOPLE A CHANCE TO GROW.
00:21:32 WHAT I'M SEEING IS THAT THERE HAVE BEEN I GUESS LIKE THE 50'S OR
00:21:38 60'S, EVERYBODY WAS CARDED TO A WHITE SCHOOL AND ALL THAT, BUT THESE
00:21:44 CHILDREN, THEY ARE BABIES, AND THERE'S NO SCHOOLS, THEY HAVE TO GO
00:21:52 WAY ACROSS SKOKIE, AND THEY LIVE RIGHT HERE, BUT ANYWAY, MY BOTTOM
00:21:58 LINE IS THIS, I'M ASKING THAT YOU WOULD DO SOME FUNDING TO KEEP SOME
00:22:04 OF THE SCHOOLS IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY.
00:22:07 THIS IS NOT WHAT I WAS SUPPOSED TO READ, THIS IS FROM MY HEART.
00:22:12 >> THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMMENTS.
00:22:15 [APPLAUSE].
00:22:16 >> THE NEXT SPEAKER IS ANNA SANTANO.
00:22:28 >> GOOD MORNING, EVERYBODY.
00:22:33 MY NAME IS ANNA, I'M A PARENT OF [INAUDIBLE] ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AND
00:22:41 BOARD MEMBER FOR LSNA, [INAUDIBLE] NEIGHBORHOOD SCHOOL ASSOCIATION, I
00:22:48 LOVE MOLSAR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, [INAUDIBLE] HE IS WORKING TOGETHER
00:22:53 AROUND 20 YEARS, PARENTS, STUDENTS AND TEACHERS.
00:22:57 I HAD A DREAM ONE DAY, MAYBE MY SCHOOL IS NUMBER ONE IN THE NATION,
00:23:05 WHY NOT?
00:23:06 RIGHT NOW, MY SCHOOL AND THE [INAUDIBLE] AROUND ONE MILLION AND
00:23:13 NUMBER TWO THE STUDENTS, 200 OF STUDENTS, YOU KNOW, ONLY I WANT TO
00:23:21 SAY ALDERMAN, MAYOR EMANUEL, REMEMBER WHO PUT YOU IN THAT CHAIR, YOUR
00:23:29 COMMUNITY.
00:23:31 WHITE, BLACK, ANY DENOMINATION, WE PUT YOU IN THAT CHAIR, AND RIGHT
00:23:35 NOW IT'S NECESSARY, WORK FOR YOUR COMMUNITY, NOT FOR THE BIG
00:23:45 FACTORIES, THE BIG MAKING BIG MONEY FOR SOMEBODY ELSE, REMEMBER, YOU
00:23:49 ARE THERE FOR YOUR COMMUNITY.
00:23:50 RIGHT NOW, [INAUDIBLE] AREA THEY MAKE OUR BUILDING TO THE
00:24:03 [INAUDIBLE], MAKE HOUSING, STUDIO, IN MY AREA, THEY LIVE FAMILIES.
00:24:13 HOW ARE YOU GOING TO LIVE IN ONE STUDIO WHEN YOU HAVE TWO OR THREE
00:24:20 CHILDREN?
00:24:22 FOR ME, IT'S IMPOSSIBLE.
00:24:23 RIGHT NOW, THE RENT IS GOING HIGH.
00:24:24 WHY MY CHILDREN, THEY LOST THAT TIME WITH MY HUSBAND BECAUSE HE NEED
00:24:35 TO WORK THREE JOBS TO PAY THE RENT?
00:24:36 IT'S NOT FAIR.
00:24:43 YOU'RE HERE FIGHTING FOR YOUR COMMUNITY, YOU'RE HERE FOR FIGHTING FOR
00:24:47 THAT CHILDREN AND YOU NEVER KNOW THAT CHILDREN IN THAT SCHOOL IS
00:24:51 GOING TO THE PRESIDENT TO THE UNITED STATES.
00:24:56 MAYBE THAT CHILDREN, THEY COVER YOUR CHAIR BECAUSE YOU KNOW WHAT, I'M
00:25:02 SORRY TO SAY, YOU'RE NOT MAKING YOUR JOB GOOD.
00:25:10 AND YOU KNOW WHAT, I SAY THANK YOU BECAUSE I WANT TO CHANGE, I WANT
00:25:17 MONEY FOR MY SCHOOL.
00:25:18 I DON'T WANT NO MORE CUTS THAT JERRY STAR, YEAH, BUT WHAT I HAVE IN
00:25:26 THE MIDDLE TO THE CHAIR, ANOTHER CUT, MORE STUDENTS GET OUT, OKAY, I
00:25:32 NEED TO GET OUT.
00:25:33 THANK YOU.
00:25:34 >> THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMMENTS.
00:25:36 THE NEXT SPEAKER IS PATRICIA BOLTON.
00:25:48 >> GOOD MORNING, MR. MAYOR, CITY COUNCIL.
00:25:51 MY NAME IS PATRICIA BARTON, I'M A RETIRED TEACHER, I'M A SENIOR
00:25:58 CITIZEN, I LIVE IN THE 10TH WARD AND I LIKE TO GIVE A SHOUT-OUT TO MY
00:26:07 ALDER LADY, SUE GOSS FOR THE LEADERSHIP AND THE WONDER WORK SHE HAS
00:26:11 SHOWN TOWARD EDUCATION IN THE CITY AND THAT'S WHY I'M HERE TO SPEAK
00:26:15 TO YOU TODAY.
00:26:17 I WAS JUST THINKING WHEN BROTHER G2 BROWN WAS SPEAKING ABOUT HIS
00:26:25 COMMUNITY THAT I STARTED SCHOOL HERE IN CHICAGO 60 YEARS AGO SO FOR
00:26:30 THOSE OF YOU WHO CAN DO THE MATH, DON'T TRY TO ADD UP HOW OLD I AM,
00:26:35 BUT IT WAS THE SAME STRUGGLE WITH THE SCHOOLS.
00:26:40 THIS CITY HAS YET TO MAKE A SOLID AND FIRM COMMITMENT TO EDUCATION IN
00:26:49 THIS CITY AND IT NEEDS TO DO THAT.
00:26:52 IF WE ARE TO BE A WORLD CLASS CITY WHICH WE SAY WE ARE AND I BELIEVE
00:26:56 WE ARE, WE HAVE TO PROPERLY AND ADEQUATELY FUND OUR SCHOOLS, A WORLD
00:27:02 CLASS CITY DESERVES A -- CHILDREN OF A WORLD CLASS CITY DESERVE A
00:27:06 WORLD CLASS EDUCATION.
00:27:07 [APPLAUSE].
00:27:11 NOW, I OWN A SMALL BUNGALOW, I PAY MY TAXES, I'LL BE GOING DOWNSTAIRS
00:27:17 TO SEE ABOUT THAT WHEN I LEAVE HERE, BUT I RESENT THE FACT THAT WHILE
00:27:23 I PAY MY TAXES, THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE IN THE CITY WHO GET AWAY WITH
00:27:28 NOT PAYING THEIR FULL SHARE OF TAXES AND MANY OF THESE PEOPLE HAVE
00:27:37 BILLION DOLLAR BUSINESSES AND MILLION DOLLAR HOMES.
00:27:42 I CANNOT AFFORD ALDERMAN BURKE'S LAW FIRM TO GREECE THE -- GREECE
00:27:50 -- GREASE THE WAY FOR ME TO GET A TAX PAY AND I DON'T MIND PAYING MY
00:27:55 TAXES IF IT GOES TOWARDS GOOD THINGS LIKE TOWARDS EDUCATING CHILDREN,
00:28:00 BUT THIS IS NOT A POOR CITY, THIS IS A WEALTHY CITY, BILLIONS AND
00:28:04 BILLIONS OF DOLLARS PASS THROUGH THE CITY EVERY DAY AND THERE'S NO
00:28:09 REASON WHY WE ARE CUTTING SCHOOL PROGRAMS, CLOSING SCHOOL LIBRARIES,
00:28:16 NOT BUYING BOOKS.
00:28:18 WE CAN DO THIS BUT THE WILL HAS TO BE THERE AND THE WILL HAS TO BE
00:28:25 WHAT THE PEOPLE WANT.
00:28:26 THE AVERAGE PERSON IN THIS CITY WANTS A GOOD SCHOOL SYSTEM.
00:28:33 EVERYBODY SHOULD WANT ONE, A GOOD SCHOOL SYSTEM BRINGS PEOPLE INTO
00:28:37 THE CITY AND EVENTUALLY THE CITY AND EVERYONE IN IT PROFITS FROM THAT.
00:28:43 WE HAVE TO COMMIT OURSELVES TO DOING THAT AND THAT MEANS THAT WE'VE
00:28:47 GOT TO RAISE REVENUE AND WE'VE GOT TO GET REVENUE FROM THOSE WHO --.
00:28:54 >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
00:28:57 THE NEXT SPEAKER IS CORETHA FORD.
00:29:09 >> THE NEXT SPEAKER IS SHAKIA SCOTT, NO, SHE'S HERE?
00:29:19 >> HI, I'M CORETHA FORD, A FORMER STUDENT AT BRONZEVILLE SCHOLASTIC
00:29:29 INSTITUTE AND I'M SPEAKING ON BEHALF OF CHICAGO PUBLIC SCHOOL
00:29:35 LIBRARIES.
00:29:40 THE LIBRARY WAS A BIG PART OF MY WHOLE YEAR AT BRONZEVILLE, I WENT
00:29:45 THERE FOR BOOK CLUB AND WHEN I FIRST BEGAN THE BOOK CLUB WAS CLOSED
00:29:50 BECAUSE OF FUNDING, AND EVEN THOUGH IT WAS CLOSED, WE STILL ROSE UP
00:29:56 FROM THAT AND CONTINUED TO READ BOOKS.
00:30:01 THE LIBRARY PROVIDED US A SAFE PLACE FOR SOME OF THE STUDENTS, IT
00:30:05 PROVIDED A PLACE TO ESCAPE EVERYTHING WHEN YOU'RE DONE WITH YOUR
00:30:09 HOMEWORK, THE LIBRARY PERSON HELPED WITH PROJECTS, WHEN WE MAD TO DO
00:30:13 HISTORY PROJECTS, SHE WOULD CALL LEADERS FROM PAST MARCHES OR EVENTS
00:30:19 AND STUFF AND SHE WOULD ASK THEM TO TALK TO US, TO HELP US WITH
00:30:27 PROJECTS.
00:30:28 LET'S SEE, WHAT ELSE CAN I SAY.
00:30:32 THE LIBRARY IS JUST SOMETHING THAT'S REALLY BIG AND I FEEL LIKE
00:30:37 BECAUSE WE'RE IN A LOW-INCOME NEIGHBORHOOD AND WE'RE ALSO IN A
00:30:43 LOW-INCOME SCHOOL, THEY DON'T WANT TO PROVIDE AS MUCH AND EVEN THOUGH
00:30:48 THEY SAY THEY'RE TRYING, IMAGINE IF IT WAS YOUR CHILD AT THIS SCHOOL,
00:30:52 WOULD YOU WANT THE LIBRARY TO BE CLOSED, WOULD YOU WANT THIS ACCESS
00:30:56 CUT OFF FROM STUDENTS?
00:30:57 THEY HAVE TO SIT HERE, IF THEY NEED HELP FROM SOMEWHERE, WHERE ARE
00:31:02 THEY GOING TO GET THIS HELP FROM?
00:31:04 YOU HAVE TO THINK ABOUT THAT STUFF.
00:31:06 STUDENTS CAN'T JUST GO WHERE THEY WANT TO GO TO GET THE HELP THEY
00:31:10 NEED IF THEY'RE IN LOW-INCOME PLACES.
00:31:12 THE LIBRARY WAS THAT PLACE TO HELP WITH THE RESOURCE THEY NEEDED.
00:31:18 MS. SIEE HELPED WITH THE RESOURCES THEY NEEDED, WITHOUT HER, WE
00:31:24 WOULDN'T BE AS SUCCESSFUL AS WE WANTED TO BE FOR THE FACT THAT WE GO
00:31:30 TO THIS SCHOOL AND WE LOOK AT TV'S WHERE PEOPLE GO TO THIS SCHOOL
00:31:34 WHERE THEY HAVE ALL THIS ACCESS AND WE HAVE NOTHING AND HOW WE HAVE
00:31:39 HAND ME DOWN BOOKS, HOW THEY HAVE THE UPGRADED VERSION.
00:31:42 WE HAVE TO REALLY THINK ABOUT THOSE THINGS.
00:31:45 THAT'S ALL I HAVE TO SAY.
00:31:46 THANK YOU.
00:31:47 >> THANK YOU, MS. FORD.
00:31:49 [APPLAUSE].
00:31:50 >> THE NEXT SPEAKER IS SHAKIA SCOTT.
00:32:05 >> GOOD MORNING, EVERYBODY.
00:32:08 MY NAME IS SHAKIA SCOTT, I'M ON THE THIRD WARD ON UNDER ALDERMAN PAT
00:32:17 DOWELL, I'LL HERE FOR THE LIBRARY AS WELL, I BELIEVE WE NEED OUR
00:32:24 LIBRARIANS AROUND, NOT ONLY ARE THEY JUST LIBRARIANS, THEY HAVE A
00:32:30 STRONG SUPPORT SYSTEM FOR THE SCHOOL, NOT ONLY DO THEY DO THEIR JOB,
00:32:34 THEY DO ABOVE AND BEYOND THEIR JOBS TO HELP US OUT.
00:32:37 WITH ME, I WAS ALWAYS SOMEBODY THAT YOU COULD JUST TALK AND DO THINGS
00:32:42 BUT SARAH SAYEED, OUR LIBRARIAN, I WOULD LIKE THE GIVE APPLAUSE
00:32:47 BECAUSE SHE WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND TO HELP ME OUT, I'M NOW IN THE
00:32:51 MILITARY, IF IT WASN'T FOR HER, I DON'T THINK I WOULD BE IN THE
00:32:54 MILITARY RIGHT NOW, I WOULDN'T HAVE NO GOAL, BUT SHE HAS TALKED TO ME
00:32:58 AND PUT ME ON THE RIGHT TRACK, I BELIEVE WHEN WE DON'T HAVE OUR
00:33:02 LIBRARIANS, WHO DO WE GO TO WHEN WE DON'T HAVE ANYBODY ELSE TO HELP
00:33:06 US, WE NEED PEOPLE TO HELP US OUT AND SHE HAS DONE WONDERFUL THINGS
00:33:11 FOR BRONZEVILLE, SHE HAS MADE BRONZEVILLE STAND UP AND PAT DOWELL HAS
00:33:16 HELPED WITH A PLOT OF OTHER LAYOFFS AT OUR SCHOOL, WE ARE LOSING OUR
00:33:20 TEACHERS, WE ARE LOSING OUR PRINCIPALS BUT FOR HER TO STILL BE HERE
00:33:24 SHOWS ME SOMETHING THAT SHE'S DOING HER JOB AND DOING IT HAVE WELL SO
00:33:28 THAT'S WHAT I REALLY HAD TO SAY, I BELIEVE WE NEED OUR LIBRARIANS, IF

00:33:39 THE NEXT SPEAKER IS JOY CLINDENING.
00:33:51 >> GOOD MORNING, ALDERMEN, I'M A PARENT OF TWO CPS GRADUATES AND
00:34:00 TWO AT KENWOOD HIGH SCHOOL, A SCHOOL THAT'S LOST MORE THAN 2 MILLION
00:34:03 DOLLARS OVER THE PAST FOUR YEARS IN SPITE OF STEADY ENROLLMENT.
00:34:09 I'M ALSO THE MANAGING DIRECTOR FOR RAISE YOUR HAND FOR ILLINOIS
00:34:12 PUBLIC EDUCATION.
00:34:13 I'M HERE TODAY TO SPEAK ABOUT THE REALITY OF SCHOOL BUDGETS AND I'M
00:34:18 SPEAKING TO YOU ALDERMEN, THE REALITY OF SCHOOL BUDGETS AT CPS IN
00:34:23 LIGHT OF THE RECENT PASSAGE OF THE SCHOOL FUNDING BILL AND THE NEED
00:34:26 FOR LOCAL REVENUE TO OFFSET THE DEFICIT THAT STILL EXISTS IN CPS.
00:34:30 THE YEARS OF CUTS AND THE NEW FORMS OF SCHOOL PRIVATIZATION IN THE
00:34:36 FUNDING BILL THAT WILL LEECH MORE DOLLARS FROM OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS, WE
00:34:40 DON'T YET KNOW THE IMPACT THAT THE TAX SCHOLARSHIP VOUCHER PROGRAM
00:34:45 WILL HAVE ON CPS BUT WE DO KNOW THAT CPS HAS TO COME UP WITH A
00:34:49 SIGNIFICANT INCREASE FOR EXISTING CHARTER SCHOOLS DUE TO THE SCHOOL
00:34:53 FUNDING BILL.
00:34:55 AS WAS OPTED FRIDAY, THE CHARTER LOBBY SAYING THEY'RE GETTING 120
00:34:59 MILLION FROM CPS DUE DO A MANDATED PER PUPIL FUNDING, WHERE IS THIS
00:35:06 MONEY GOING TO GO THROUGH.
00:35:07 CPS SCHOOLS ARE IN DESPERATE NEED OF REVENUE AND THIS DOESN'T COME
00:35:13 CLOSE TO MAKING OUR SCHOOLS WHOLE, THEY HAVE ONLY 138 LIBRARIANS FOR
00:35:20 [INAUDIBLE] 257 FULL TIME MUSIC TEACHERS FOR [INAUDIBLE] AND SUB
00:35:27 STABBED RATIOS FOR SCHOOL CLINICIANS ACROSS THE SCHOOL DISTRICT AND
00:35:31 THERE'S MORE, NEIGHBORHOOD HIGH SCHOOLS HAVE BEEN DECIMATED AGAIN,
00:35:36 JULIAN, KELLY, DUN BAR, HARLAN, ALL LOST 10 OR MORE POSITIONS, WHO IS
00:35:44 LOOKING OUT FOR OUR MOST VULNERABLE STUDENTS, WE HOPE YOU ARE, TIF
00:35:50 BROUGHT IN A RECORD, 561 MILLION THIS YEAR, WHERE IS THE URGENCY FROM
00:35:54 THIS BODY TO USE MORE OF THAT MONEY TO FUND OUR SCHOOLS?
00:35:59 WHY HASN'T THIS BODY VIGOROUSLY DEBATED REVENUE OPTIONS FOR OUR
00:36:03 SCHOOLS?
00:36:04 WHY HASN'T THE CORPORATE HEAD TAX ORDINANCE AT LEAST BEEN DEBATED?
00:36:09 IT IS YOUR JOB TO DEBATE THESE ISSUES, IT IS YOUR JOB TO TAKE ACTION
00:36:15 ON THESE ISSUES, SO THAT YOUR CONSTITUENTS KNOW WHERE YOU STAND WHICH
00:36:20 SHOULD BE WITH THEM AND WITH OUR SCHOOLS, ALDERMEN, WE NEED YOU TO
00:36:25 FREE THE FUNDS, WE NEED YOU TO TAKE ACTION NOW.
00:36:30 THANK YOU.
00:36:31 [APPLAUSE].
00:36:32 >> THANK YOU.
00:36:35 THE NEXT SPEAKER IS ROBERT RODDENBERG.
00:36:46 >> I'M ROBERT OF THE UPTOWN TENT CITY ORGANIZERS GROUP AND OTHER
00:36:51 ORGANIZATIONS, HERE IS AN UPDATE ON THE HOMELESS OF UPTOWN.
00:36:55 THE UPTOWN TENT CITY HOMELESS NOW FACE A 7 A.M. SEPTEMBER 18TH
00:37:02 EVICTION DEADLINE FROM THE WILSON AND
00:37:03 LAWRENCE VIADUCT, THE CITY HAS NOT
00:37:11 ANNOUNCED PLAN TO HOUSE OR LOCATE ALL OF THE HOMELESS OF UPTOWN TENT
00:37:16 CITY.
00:37:17 THIS IS DESPITE A FEDERAL INJUNCTION LAW
00:37:18 SUIT REQUIRING THE CITY TO COME
00:37:21 UP WITH A HOUSING LOCATION PLAN.
00:37:26 SEVERAL OF THESE OPTIONS OF RELOCATION LISTED IN THE LAWSUIT DO NOT
00:37:34 REQUIRE MUCH CITY MONEY.
00:37:36 THE CITY ALSO FACES A POTENTIAL AT LEAST CHICAGO COALITION FOR THE
00:37:43 HOMELESS LAWSUIT ABOUT THE DELIBERATE DISCRIMINATORY REDESIGN OF THE
00:37:50 VIE OWE DRUGS REPAINTING A NEW BIKE LANE ON THE SIDEWALKS OF THE
00:37:59 VIADUCTS BLOCKING OTHER TEN CITIES UNDER THEM, RIDING BIKES ON THE
00:38:02 SIDEWALK IS AN ILLEGAL TICKET OFFENSE.
00:38:07 THE DEPARTMENT OF FAMILY AND SUPPORT SERVICES ADVICE TO THE HOMELESS
00:38:12 IS -- AS IT IS NOW IS AS IT WAS BEFORE, ABANDON YOUR PROPERTY GO TO A
00:38:19 HOMELESS SHELTER IN UPTOWN OR THE HOMELESS SHELTER OF THE PACIFIC
00:38:24 MISSION FAR FROM THE SOCIAL SERVICE NETWORK OF UPTOWN.
00:38:29 THIS ADVICE VIOLATES THE ILLINOIS HOMELESS BILL OF RIGHTS AND THE
00:38:34 PERSONAL DIGNITY OF THE HOMELESS IN UPTOWN.
00:38:39 SOME HOMELESS UPTOWN TENT CITY RESIDENTS HAVE HAD BAD EXPERIENCES IN
00:38:43 SHELTERS, OTHERS DO NOT WANT TO BE SEPARATED FROM THEIR SPOUSES IN
00:38:49 THE GENDER SEGREGATED SHELTERS, AND MANY JUST DON'T WANT TO -- MEN
00:38:54 WANT TO MAINTAIN THEIR SENSE OF DIGNITY BY LIVING OUTSIDE OF THE
00:39:00 INSTITUTIONALIZED SHELTER SYSTEM.
00:39:06 WE AT UPTOWN CITY ORGANIZERS GROUP STRONGLY AND URGENTLY ASKS THE
00:39:13 CITY TO ACT RESPONSIBLY AND QUICKLY TO HOUSE OR RELOCATE THE UPTOWN
00:39:17 TENT CITY HOMELESS, WE HAVE SUFFERED LONG ENOUGH.
00:39:21 HOMELESSNESS IS ALSO RELATED TO HOUSING.
00:39:24 THE MAYOR AND CITY COUNCIL HAVE SHOWN THEIR SUPPORT FOR AFFORDABLE
00:39:31 HOUSING VIA THE RSO ORDINANCE, THE RAO PILOT PROGRAM BEING ANNOUNCED
00:39:36 TODAY AND MAKING THE CHA A BIT MORE ACCOUNTABLE AND COMPLETING ITS
00:39:41 MULTIYEAR PLAN FOR TRANSFORMATION.
00:39:44 THE MAYOR AND CITY COUNCIL HAS ALSO SHOWN THAT THE CITY IS A
00:39:49 WELCOMING CITY.

00:44:48 >> HEARING NO OBJECTIONS, SO ORDERED.
00:44:51 >> YOUR HONOR, AND LADIES AND GENTLEMEN OF THE COUNCIL, INDEED, THIS
00:44:57 MORNING IS AN OPPORTUNITY WE HAVE TO EXPRESS THE APPRECIATION OF ALL
00:45:03 THE PEOPLE OF CHICAGO TO THESE BRAVE OFFICER, OFFICER MENDOZA AND
00:45:11 OFFICER PEREZ WHO TRULY DISPLAYED THE REMARKABLE COURAGE AND BRAVERY
00:45:19 UNDER FIRE AT THE ROBBERY OF THE CELL PHONE STORE AT 43RD AND
00:45:29 ASHLAND, IT'S IRONIC, IS IT NOT, THAT IN THE SAME MEETING, WE'RE
00:45:34 GOING TO TAKE UP AN ORDINANCE RELATING TO CELL PHONE RESALE, SO
00:45:43 APPARENTLY, THIS KIND OF ACTIVITY OUT THERE IN THE NEIGHBORHOODS IS
00:45:49 SOMETHING THAT IS A GROWING CRIME PROBLEM.
00:45:54 THERE WAS A WISE AMERICAN WHO ONCE SAID THAT BRAVERY IS NOT THE
00:45:59 ABSENCE OF FEAR BUT ACTION IN THE FACE OF FEAR.
00:46:04 OFFICER MENDOZA AND OFFICER PEREZ SHOWED NO FEAR IN PURSUING TWO
00:46:13 GUNMEN WHO WERE FLEEING FROM THAT SOUTH SIDE T-MOBILE STORE WHERE
00:46:17 THEY HAD BOUND AND GAGGED CUSTOMERS AND EMPLOYEES.
00:46:24 WE ALL KNOW THAT THE WOMEN AND MEN OF LAW ENFORCEMENT IN CHICAGO ARE
00:46:30 THE FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE IN OUR NEIGHBORHOODS.
00:46:40 THAT DUTY THAT THEY RESPOND TO EACH AND EVERY DAY BRINGS THEM INTO
00:46:48 CONTACT WITH MARAUDERS WHO USE THE THREAT OF A GUN TO INTIMIDATE AND
00:46:57 SPREAD FEAR AMONG OUR LAW ABIDING FELLOW CITIZENS.
00:47:04 YES, MARAUDERS, THUGS, GANG BANGERS, CALL THEM WHAT YOU WILL, THESE
00:47:10 TWO FAILED IN THIS BRAZEN DAY LIGHT HOLD-UP SIMPLY BECAUSE OFFICER
00:47:17 MENDOZA AND OFFICER PEREZ WHO EXCHANGED GUN FIRE BY THE WAY WITH THE
00:47:24 OFFENDERS AND OTHER CHICAGO FRONT-LINE RESPONDERS ARRIVED ON THE
00:47:33 SCENE TO TAKE CHARGE BUT THAT SUCCESSFUL APPREHENSION DID NOT COME
00:47:41 WITHOUT A HEAVY COST BECAUSE ONE OF THE BULLETS FIRED BY ONE OF THE
00:47:49 GUNMEN STRUCK OFFICER MENDOZA IN THE LEG, SHATTERING HER KNEE AND
00:47:58 INDEED WE COULD BE GATHERING HERE TODAY UNDER FAR DIFFERENT
00:48:06 CIRCUMSTANCES IF HER GUARDIAN ANGEL HAD NOT BEEN ON HER SHOULDER THAT
00:48:12 DAY BUT WE STAND HERE TOGETHER TO THANK OFFICER PEREZ AND OFFICER
00:48:20 MENDOZA FOR THEIR COURAGE AND FOR VICTORIOUS FORTITUDE DURING A
00:48:30 PAINFUL AND CHALLENGING RECOVERY.
00:48:34 SHE HAS, HAS SHE NOT, MR. PRESIDENT, SET A REMARKABLE EXAMPLE FOR
00:48:39 YOUNG PEOPLE HERE IN OUR CITY BY MEETING AND GREETING CHICAGO PARK
00:48:46 DISTRICT CAMPERS AT THE WILSON FIELD HOUSE AND MOST IMPORTANTLY FOR
00:48:54 DOING HER DUTY AND MAKING CHICAGO A SAFER PLACE.
00:48:59 THE MEMBERS OF THE CITY COUNCIL AND THE MAYOR ARE HONORED TO WELCOME
00:49:05 THESE TWO OFFICERS HERE TO THIS HISTORIC CHAMBER THIS MORNING TO
00:49:12 APPLAUD THEIR DEDICATION TO DUTY, THEIR SACRIFICE AND THE VALUE THAT
00:49:18 THEY PLACE ON PROTECTING OUR CITIZENS AND SAFEGUARDING OUR STREETS
00:49:24 AND IT IS OUR PRAYER JOINTLY TODAY THAT THE GOOD LORD WILL KEEP SAFE
00:49:32 ALL THE BRAVE WOMEN AND MEN OF THE CHICAGO POLICE DEPARTMENT AND THAT
00:49:39 THEY WILL BE STRENGTHENED BY THE EXAMPLE OF WHAT THESE TWO OFFICERS
00:49:47 HAVE ACCOMPLISHED, AND ESPECIALLY TO VICTORIA AS SHE CONTINUES ON THE
00:49:53 ROAD TO FULL RECOVERY, YOU HAVE OUR PRAYERS AND OUR GOOD WISHES THAT
00:49:59 YOU'RE GOING TO BE COMPLETELY RESTORED TO GOOD HEALTH AND YOU'LL BE
00:50:06 BACK OUT THERE AS WE SAY BE IN THE POLICE, CONGRATULATIONS AND GOOD
00:50:13 LUCK.
00:50:14 THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT.
00:50:15 >> THANK YOU, ALDERMAN BURKE, ALDERMAN REBOYRAS.
00:50:19 >> I TOO STAND IN SUPPORT OF THIS RESOLUTION, HERE'S A SITUATION
00:50:23 WHERE AN INDIVIDUAL OPENS FIRE AND OFFICER MENDOZA AND PEREZ AND
00:50:29 ALTHOUGH OFFICER MENDOZA WAS STRUCK ON HER KNEE, OFFICER PEREZ
00:50:33 CONTINUES HIS PURSUIT OF THE OFFENDER AND LATER CAPTURES HIM.
00:50:37 ON BEHALF OF MY CONSTITUENTS AND MY FAMILY, I WANT TO WISH YOU AND
00:50:43 COMMEND OFFICERS MENDOZA AND PEREZ AND I WISH FOR A QUICK RECOVERY SO
00:50:47 YOU CAN GET BACK TO THE JOB THAT YOU LOVE.
00:50:49 THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU IN THE POLICE
00:50:54 DEPARTMENT.
00:50:55 >> ALDERMAN THOMPSON?
00:50:57 >> THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT, I TOO RISE IN SUPPORT OF THIS RESOLUTION.
00:51:01 I WOULD LIKE TO ACKNOWLEDGE COMMANDER STEVE CHUNG FROM THE [INAUDIBLE]
00:51:08 DISTRICT AND STEVE AS WELL, I WANT TO CONGRATULATE OFFICERS MENDOZA
00:51:12 AND PEREZ AS WELL AS THEIR FAMILIES FOR THEIR BRAVERY AND
00:51:16 DEDICATION TO THE CITY OF CHICAGO, I'M HONORED TO CO-SPONSOR THIS
00:51:20 RESOLUTION FOR THESE TWO OFFICER WHO TRULY SERVE AND PROTECT OUR CITY
00:51:26 AND SHOWED EXEMPLARY ACTIONS ON JULY 21.
00:51:30 TO QUOTE OUR CHILDREN FROM WILSON PARK CAMPERS, ", THEY TRULY ARE OUR
00:51:38 HEROES".
00:51:40 PROTECTING THE CITY OF CHICAGO, RUNNING INTO HARM'S WAY WITHOUT
00:51:44 REGARD FOR THEIR OWN SAFETY IS TRULY COMMENDABLE.
00:51:49 IT'S UNFORTUNATE THAT ALMOST AT THE SAME INTERSECTION ON MAY 2, TWO
00:51:54 OTHER OFFICERS WERE SHOT, TWO OF THE THREE OFFENDERS THAT WERE
00:51:59 INVOLVED IN THE INCIDENT WITH OFFICERS MENDOZA AND PEREZ HAD PREVIOUS
00:52:04 GUN CHARGES, ONE OF THE OFFENDERS WAS PAROLED FOR -- WAS ON PAROLE
00:52:10 FOR A 2014 GUN CONVICTION AND ANOTHER -- WE HAD A 2017 ARREST FOR AN
00:52:18 UNLAWFUL USE OF A WEAPON BY A FELON.
00:52:22 THE INDIVIDUAL WHO SOLD THE GUN TO THE GANG MEMBERS THAT WERE USED IN
00:52:28 THE MAY 2 SHOOTING OF THE POLICE OFFICERS WAS RELEASED ON HIS OWN
00:52:34 RECOGNIZANCE ON A FEDERAL WEAPONS CHARGE.
00:52:35 THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE.
00:52:39 WE NEED TO CONTINUE TO PASS SENSIBLE, REASONABLE GUN LEGISLATION TO
00:52:44 PROTECT THE POLICE OFFICERS AS THEY'RE OUT THERE DOING THEIR JOB.
00:52:47 IT'S UNFAIR TO THEM AND UNFAIR TO THE CITY TO HAVE POLICE OFFICERS
00:52:54 OUT-GUNNED BY THESE INDIVIDUALS.
00:52:57 TODAY, I WANT TO HONOR THESE TWO OFFICERS AND THANK THEM FOR THEIR
00:53:00 WORK AND DEDICATION.
00:53:02 I WANT TO CONGRATULATE THEM AND ON BEHALF OF MY FAMILY, THE RESIDENTS
00:53:07 OF THE 11TH WARD, I WANT TO WISH VICKY A SPEEDY RECOVERY AND
00:53:12 HOPEFULLY SHE WILL BE ABLE TO ACHIEVE HER GOAL OF THE HUSTLE UP THE
00:53:18 HAND COCK WHICH SHE DOES EVERY YEAR AND HOPEFULLY SHE'LL BE ABLE TO
00:53:23 DO THAT AND TO DAVE, I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR BRAVERY AND
00:53:27 CONTINUED SUPPORT AND I KNOW YOU'RE LOOKING FORWARD TO HAVING YOUR
00:53:31 PARTNER BACK SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO COME TO ANYMORE OFFICE MEETINGS
00:53:34 WITH US AND GET BACK ON THE STREET BECAUSE SOMETIMES THOSE ARE WORSE,
00:53:38 BUT I WANT TO THANK YOU AND I WANT TO THANK ALL THE CHICAGO POLICE
00:53:42 OFFICERS AND OUR FIRST RESPONDERS, IT'S THE GREATEST POLICE FORCE IN
00:53:47 THE COUNTRY DESPITE WHAT SOME PEOPLE MIGHT SAY, AND I JUST WANT TO
00:53:50 THANK ALL OF THEM FOR THEIR CONTINUED SUPPORT AND DEDICATION TO THE
00:53:55 CITY OF CHICAGO.
00:53:56 THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR.
00:53:57 >> ALDERMAN LOPEZ?
00:53:59 >> THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT, I RISE IN SUPPORT OF THIS RESOLUTION
00:54:06 BECAUSE BEFORE US TODAY, WE HAVE TWO OF THE 9TH DISTRICTS FINEST,
00:54:11 WE'VE ALL HEARD THE STORY AND I CAN TELL YOU AS BEING ONE OF THE
00:54:15 INDIVIDUALS WHO WAS THERE THAT NIGHT TO SEE VICTORIA COMFORTING HER
00:54:21 FAMILY MORE SO THAN THEY WERE COMFORTING HER, TO SEE HER BROTHERS AND
00:54:26 SISTERS IN BLUE STANDING TOGETHER IN LIGHT OF THIS TRAGEDY, AS A
00:54:31 PAINFUL REMINDER FOR ALL OF US THAT SOME OF OUR NEIGHBORHOODS, MANY
00:54:34 OF OUR NEIGHBORHOODS HAVE THREATS NOT ONLY AGAINST THE POLICE BUT
00:54:39 AGAINST THE RESIDENTS AND SOMETIMES EVEN AGAINST SOME OF US.
00:54:45 THE THREATS ARE REAL, JUST THIS WEEKEND ALONE, CPD CONFISCATED 110
00:54:52 FIREARMS, MANY OF WHICH HIGH CAPACITY ASSAULT RIFLES, THESE DANGERS
00:55:00 EXIST.
00:55:01 THESE DANGERS EXIST AGAINST EVERY-DAY INDIVIDUALS TRYING TO MAKE
00:55:04 CHICAGO A BETTER PLACE AND IT IS BRAVE PEOPLE LIKE YOU, LIKE YOU,
00:55:12 YOUR COMMAND STAFF AND ALL OF YOUR FELLOW OFFICERS THAT STAND IN THE
00:55:17 WAY FROM THOSE WEAPONS DOING HARM TO US IN OUR COMMUNITIES.
00:55:20 YOU ARE MORE THAN JUST AN INSPIRATION TO THE DEPARTMENT, YOU ARE A
00:55:25 MODEL OF WHAT EACH AND EVERY CHICAGO JUAN MUST FIGHT FOR ON A DAILY
00:55:35 BASIS, OUR CITY IS GLOBAL AND IT IS A SANCTUARY TO EVERYONE AND IT IS
00:55:38 ONE THAT PEOPLE BELIEVE IN AND CONTINUE TO FIGHT FOR AND AS LONG AS
00:55:42 THERE ARE INDIVIDUALS LIKE VICTORIA AND DAVID HERE, I KNOW OUR CITY
00:55:49 WILL SURVIVE, SO I COMMEND YOU BOTH, I COMMEND YOUR LEADERSHIP, I
00:55:53 KNOW THEM WELL AND I AM THANKFUL THAT YOU ARE ON THE FORCE AND BE

00:56:05 >> THANK YOU, I WISH TO ADD MY VOICE TO THIS RESOLUTION WHICH I
00:56:12 WHOLEHEARTEDLY SUPPORT.
00:56:13 TAKE A LOOK AT THE PEOPLE THAT ARE OUT THERE, THERE'S A CHINESE AND I

00:56:46 THEIR UNIFORM, THEY KNOW ONE OF THE RISKS THEY TAKE IS POTENTIALLY
00:56:49 BEING HURT AND MAYBE LOSING THEIR LIVES.

01:02:19 THE OFFICERS IN THE 9TH DISTRICT PROTECTING ALL OUR COMMUNITIES, KEEP

01:02:54 MENDOZA FOR THEIR SERVICE AND FOR THEIR BRAVERY.
01:02:59 I THINK THIS INCIDENT SHOWS THE IMPORTANCE OF PARTNERSHIP AND TEAM

01:03:24 ONE IS I WANT TO THANK OFFICER MENDOZA BEFORE EVEN THIS INCIDENT WHEN
01:03:28 I RAN WITH HER WHEN SHE WAS A CADET, SHE DECIDED NOTED TO PASS ME ON
01:03:33 THE RUN SO I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR NOT MAKING THE MAYOR FEEL SO OLD.
01:03:37 SECOND ON A VERY IMPORTANT NOTE IS WE'RE ALL GOING TO BE WITH YOU
01:03:41 WHEN YOU HUSTLE UP THE HAND COCK AND MAKE THAT GOAL AN ACCOMPLISHMENT
01:03:46 AND A REALITY AND WE HAVE ALL THE CONFIDENCE GIVEN THE ATTITUDE, YOUR
01:03:51 SPIRIT AND YOUR DETERMINATION THAT THAT WILL BE HAPPEN NRG THE NEAR
01:03:55 FUTURE.
01:03:56 I WANT TO RAISE TWO POINTERS THAT NEED TO BE UNDERSCORED, ONE IS
01:03:59 ALDERMAN BURKE NOTED THAT LATER ON TODAY AS I TALK TO YOU EARLIER,
01:04:03 WE'LL BE PASSING AN ORDINANCE TO TOUGHEN THE LAWS AS IT RELATES TO
01:04:09 SECONDARY PHONE MARKET WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU WERE DOING TO STOP
01:04:12 THAT ROBBERY AND THE ACTIONS THAT WE TAKE HERE REFLECT A REALITY OUT
01:04:15 ON THE STREETS AND WE HOPE IT HAS THE DETERRENT EFFECT THAT THIS IS
01:04:20 INTENDED TO DO SO ANOTHER OFFICER AND THEIR PARTNER DID NOT FACE THE
01:04:24 SITUATION YOU FACED.
01:04:25 THE SECOND THING IS WHAT ALDERMAN THOMPSON NOTED, THAT THE
01:04:30 INDIVIDUALS YOU WERE DEALING WITH AT THAT ROBBERY WERE OUT ON PRIOR
01:04:35 GUN CONVICTIONS, NEVER SERVING THE FULL TIME THAT THEY WERE INTENDED
01:04:39 TO SERVE WHICH IS WHY THE SUPERINTENDENT WHO'S ALSO RECOVERING AND I
01:04:43 TALKED TO HIM EARLIER THIS MORNING AND LAST NIGHT, THE SUPERINTENDENT
01:04:50 AND I WORKED SO HARD TO CHANGE THAT LAW TO ENSURE REPEAT GUN
01:04:56 OFFENDERS ARE NOT BACK AON THE STREETS ONLY SERVED A FRACTION OF THE
01:05:00 TIME FOR THEIR PRIOR GUN OFFENSE AND THIS IS ALSO A REALITY ON THE
01:05:03 STREETS OF THE CITY OF CHICAGO SO BOTH OF THOSE -- THE ORDINANCE HERE
01:05:08 AND THE LEGISLATION DOWNING IN SPRINGFIELD REFLECT CHANGES THAT WE
01:05:11 NEED TO DO SO THAT THE WORK THAT OUR OFFICERS ARE DOING IS BACKED UP
01:05:14 BY THE LAWS OF BOTH THE CITY AND THE STATE OF ILLINOIS, AND IT'S SAID
01:05:21 BUT IT'S WORTHY OF REPEATING, TO YOUR LEADERSHIP TEAM THAT IS HERE
01:05:25 WITH YOU, NOT JUST TODAY BUT THEY WERE WITH YOU THAT NIGHT, I WANT TO
01:05:29 THANK THEM FOR STANDING BY YOUR SIDE AND GIVING YOU THE TYPE OF
01:05:33 LEADERSHIP AND THE TYPE OF GUIDANCE THAT'S IMPORTANT FOR OUR RANK AND
01:05:37 FILE TO HAVE EVERY DAY AND EVERY NIGHT AND I CANNOT WAIT THE SEE YOU
01:05:42 HUSTLE UP THE HAND COCK THIS TIME RATHER THAN ALONGSIDE YOU, I'LL BE
01:05:47 BEHIND YOU CHEERING, SO TO ALL OF YOU, LET'S GIVE THEM A HAND, THANK
01:05:51 YOU FOR YOUR LEADERSHIP.

01:22:55 SENSE OF URGENCY TO HAVE AN OUTCOME LIKE YOU HAD IN THIS CASE HAS GOT
01:23:00 TO BE IN THE BACK OF YOUR MINDS AND IT'S A TESTAMENT TO THE
01:23:05 DEDICATION OF WHAT YOU DO, THE CHALLENGES THAT YOU TAKE ON, THE
01:23:09 DANGER THAT YOU FACE THAT THE OUTCOME WAS A POSITIVE ONE, THAT THAT
01:23:14 FAMILY CAME OUT WHOLE AND IT'S BECAUSE OF THE RISKS THAT YOU TAKE AND
01:23:18 THE CHALLENGES THAT YOU TAKE ON FOR US.
01:23:21 WE'RE VERY PROUD THAT SHELLY WRIGHT IS A 45TH WARD RESIDENT AND THE
01:23:28 PARAMEDIC IN CHARGE IN THIS CASE BUT I KNOW WE'RE VERY PROUD OF ALL
01:23:32 OF YOU BECAUSE REGARDLESS OF THE WARD, WHEN THE CALL COMES IN, YOU
01:23:37 GUYS STEP UP AND ANSWER, SO THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEART.
01:23:40 THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT.

01:23:46 >> THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT, I TOO RISE IN SUPPORT OF THIS RESOLUTION
01:23:50 IN SUPPORTING OUR FIREMEN AND OUR PARAMEDICS.
01:23:53 AS I SAID TO THE POLICE OFFICERS THAT WERE BEFORE YOU, I'M VERY PROUD
01:24:00 THAT YOU SHOWED ARE BRAVERY AND COURAGE EVERY SINGLE DAY YOU GO TO
01:24:05 WORK, EVEN WHEN YOU'RE NOT ATTENDING THE FIRE, JUST THE
01:24:08 THOUGHT OF YOU GOING TO WORK TO SAVE SOMEONE'S LIFE EVERY SINGLE DAY
01:24:13 DOES THIS CITY GREAT HONOR.
01:24:14 I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO SAY THAT THE REASON WHY I STAND TO SPEAK ON
01:24:21 FIREMEN AND POLICE OFFICERS, BECAUSE TO ME, IT'S AN HONOR TO BE ABLE
01:24:24 TO DO THAT.
01:24:25 IN MY 21 YEARS AS A POLICE OFFICER, I'VE BEEN FORTUNATELY HAD TO SEE
01:24:31 A FEW POLICE OFFICERS, SOME THAT I KNOW PASS AWAY IN THE LINE OF
01:24:34 DUTY, SO TO STAND BEFORE YOU EVERY TIME THAT YOU'RE BEING HONORED AND
01:24:38 RECOGNIZED IS INDEED AN HONOR FOR ME, SO THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR
01:24:42 SERVICE, TO THE CITY OF CHICAGO AND MAKING US A BETTER PLACE, THANK
01:24:46 YOU, THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT.
01:24:48 >> WE HAVE NO ALDERMEN WHO WISH TO MAKE A COMMENT, ON BEHALF OF THE
01:24:53 CITY AND FOR THE CITY TO RECOGNIZE THAT WHEN YOU GOT THE CALL AND
01:25:01 WHAT DESCRIBES SELFLESS SERVICE FOR OTHERS, YOU RAN INTO A BURNING
01:25:04 BUILDING TO SAVE THE LIVES OF INDIVIDUALS YOU DID NOT KNOW, TO
01:25:08 BREATHE AIR THAT YOU COULD NOT BREATHE AND TO FIND PEOPLE YOU COULD
01:25:16 NOT SEE.
01:25:20 THANK YOU.
01:25:21 THANK YOU FOR -- WHEN WE SAY PUTTING YOUR LIVES ON THE LINE, BEING
01:25:27 SELFLESS, SHOWING BRAVERY, THE HEROISM AND THEN ALL THE TRAINING AND
01:25:32 SUPPORT THAT COMES WITH IT, YOU ARE THE FINEST FIRE DEPARTMENT IN THE
01:25:36 UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, THANK YOU.

01:26:19 [APPLAUSE].
01:26:53 >> ALDERMAN BURKE?
01:26:55 >> YOUR HONOR, UNLESS THERE'S OBJECTION, I MOVE THAT THESE
01:26:59 RESOLUTIONS BE ADOPTED BY A VIVA VOCE VOTE.

01:27:17 COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICAGO, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I TRANSMIT HERE
01:27:21 TOGETHER WITH CITY CLERK VALENCIA AND ALDERMAN BURKE, SOLIS, MUNOZ,
01:27:29 MALDONADO, [INAUDIBLE] A RESOLUTION REGARDING THE TRUMP
01:27:34 ADMINISTRATION'S RECENTLY ANNOUNCED PLAN REGARDING THE DEFERRED
01:27:37 ACTION FOR CHILDHOOD ARRIVALS PROGRAM, THE FAVORABLE CONSIDERATION OF
01:27:40 THIS RESOLUTION WILL BE APPRECIATED, VERY FAMOUSLY JOUR, RAHM
01:27:48 EMANUEL, MAYOR.
01:27:49 >> BEFORE WE GO FORWARD, FIRST I WANT TO THANK EVERYBODY IN THE
01:27:55 COUNCIL WHO CO-SPONSORED THIS COMMUNICATION AND TRANSMITTAL OF THIS
01:28:00 EFFORT AND I WANT TO BE CLEAR, I THINK EACH OF US INDIVIDUALLY
01:28:04 HAVE DONE IN THE PAST YESTERDAY BUT IN THE PAST IS AROUND DREAMERS
01:28:08 THAT THE CITY OF CHICAGO WILL NOT ONLY BE A WELCOMING CITY BUT TO ALL
01:28:12 THOSE DREAMERS AND THEIR FAMILIES WHO ARE SITTING LITERALLY ON THE
01:28:17 EDGE OF A KNIFE NOT SURE WHAT THEIR FUTURE BEARS, I WANT THEM TO BE
01:28:22 CLEAR ABOUT THIS CITY AND THEIR FUTURE.
01:28:25 YOU ARE SECURE, YOU ARE SAFE, YOU ARE WELCOMED IN THE CITY OF CHICAGO.
01:28:30 I WANT THE CHILDREN TO GO TO SCHOOL AND I WANT THEIR PARENTS TO GO
01:28:34 ABOUT THEIR JOB AND THEIR DAILY LIVES WITHOUT ANY SENSE OF THEIR
01:28:41 VULNERABILITY AND THIS COMMUNICATION IS CLEAR ON A NUMBER OF FRONTS
01:28:45 AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, WE AS A CITY COUNCIL AND AS A CITY HAVE TAKEN
01:28:50 ACTION ON THE CHICAGO STAR SCHOLARSHIP, IF YOU GET A B AVERAGE IN
01:28:54 HIGH SCHOOL, WE MAKE COMMUNITY COLLEGE FREE AND IT'S OPEN TO
01:28:57 DREAMERS, IT CALLS ON THE STATE OF ILLINOIS AS IT RELATES TO MAP
01:29:00 FUNDING TO FOLLOW THAT EXAMPLE OF THE CHICAGO STAR SCHOLARSHIP AND
01:29:04 MAKE SURE OUR DREAMERS KNOW AS YOU PURSUE THE AMERICAN DREAM, WE'RE
01:29:07 GOING TO HELP YOU DO THAT.
01:29:09 IT ALSO ENSURES THERE BE A LEGAL FUND LIKE THE CITY COUNCIL HAS TAKEN
01:29:12 ACTION TO THOSE WHO ARE GOING TO FIGHT FOR THEIR OWN PRESERVATION AND
01:29:17 LEGAL RIGHT AND RECOGNITION IN THIS EFFORT.
01:29:23 DREAMERS ARE FULFILLING THE PROMISE OF THE AMERICAN DREAM AND CHICAGO
01:29:28 WILL STEP UP AND BE PART OF THAT JOURNEY FOR THESE CHILDREN WHO
01:29:32 THROUGH NO CHOICE OF THEIR OWN BECAUSE OF THEIR PARENTS' DECISIONS
01:29:39 KNOW NO OTHER COUNTRY OR PLACE AS NO OTHER PLACE LIKE HOME AS THE
01:29:43 CITY OF CHICAGO AND I WANT US TO BE CLEAR WHERE WE STAND AS A CITY,
01:29:47 SO I THANK EVERYBODY TAKING THIS ACTION COLLECTIVELY AND US SPEAKING
01:29:51 REGARDLESS OF WHAT PART OF THE CITY WE'RE FROM WITH ONE VOICE.
01:29:54 THANK YOU, MADAM CLERK?
01:30:00 >> ALDERMAN SOLIS?
01:30:02 >> MR. PRESIDENT, I WOULD VERY MUCH LIKE TO SPEAK ON THIS RESOLUTION.
01:30:10 I THINK WHAT PRESIDENT TRUMP DID YESTERDAY IS ONE OF THE MOST
01:30:16 HEARTLESS, EVIL MOVES THAT ANY PRESIDENT IN MY RECOLLECTION HAS MADE.
01:30:22 I THINK HE KNOWS THAT FOR OVER 30 YEARS, WE HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO GET
01:30:29 THE CONGRESS ON EITHER SIDE TO DECIDE ON A RESOLUTION TO GETTING
01:30:37 COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION REFORM DONE.
01:30:38 I THINK WHAT HE'S DONE, BASICALLY HE'S THROWN IT TO CONGRESS TO
01:30:43 FIGURE OUT WHAT WE'RE GOING TO DO.
01:30:45 I THINK WE ARE AT A POINT WHERE WE HAVE TO ORGANIZE, NOT JUST
01:30:52 CHICAGO, BUT CITIES ACROSS THE COUNTRY.
01:30:54 I THINK THAT WE HAVE TO ORGANIZE AND TARGET BIPARTISAN SUPPORT FOR
01:31:01 THIS -- FOR LEGISLATION TO HAPPEN.
01:31:05 I THINK THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP FEELS NOTHING IS GOING TO HAPPEN AND
01:31:07 HE'S GOING TO BE PLEASING HIS BASE WHICH IS -- I'M ASHAMED TO SEE
01:31:15 THAT THERE'S PEOPLE LIKE THIS IN THE UNITED STATES THAT FEEL IT'S
01:31:19 OKAY TO KICK OUT 800 THOUSAND PEOPLE, EVEN IN WORLD WAR II WHEN ONE
01:31:25 OF THE MOST HEINOUS ACTS HAPPENED IN THE UNITED STATES WHEN OVER 125,
01:31:30 130 THOUSAND JAPANESE WERE PUT IN INTERNMENT, JAPANESE AMERICANS,
01:31:36 THIS IS THE POSSIBILITY OF 800 THOUSAND YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN, NOT
01:31:42 COUNTING THEIR FAMILIES OR BROTHERS OR SISTERS OR PARENTS, WHATEVER,
01:31:46 BEING PUT AWAY INTO A COUNTRY THAT THEY HAVE NEVER REALLY KNOWN,
01:31:52 THEY'RE BEING PUT AWAY, TAKEN AWAY, THEIR LIFE, THEIR HOPES, THEIR
01:32:00 FUTURE, SO I WANTED TO SPEAK ON THIS RESOLUTION, MR. PRESIDENT,
01:32:04 BECAUSE I THINK IT'S VERY IMPORTANT.
01:32:05 I DON'T KNOW WHO HAS SAID THIS BEFORE, IF WE START THINKING, WELL,
01:32:10 THIS DOESN'T AFFECT US, IT DOES AFFECT US, AND WE HAVE TO BE STRONG,
01:32:16 WE HAVE TO BE FOCUSED.
01:32:18 I'M GLAD THAT I READ THIS RESOLUTION THAT YOU'RE ASKING, YOU'RE
01:32:25 CHALLENGING GOVERNOR RAUNER WHO IS A REPUBLICAN, WE NEED GOVERNMENT
01:32:29 SUPPORT AND WE NEED TO BE AROUND THIS, EVERYBODY IN THIS COUNCIL, YOU
01:32:34 KNOW, OUR ANCESTORS WERE NOT FROM HERE, AND WE CAME HERE BECAUSE THIS
01:32:39 IS THE GREATEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD, LET'S NOT LET THOSE ANCESTORS
01:32:46 AND THE LEGACY, LET'S NOT LET THEM DOWN IN TERM OF WHAT'S GOING TO
01:32:52 HAPPEN TO THESE 800 THOUSAND YOUNG MEN AND WOMAN.
01:32:53 >> ALDERMAN [INAUDIBLE]?
01:33:00 >> THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT, AS WE ARE ABOUT TO START CELEBRATING
01:33:05 HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH, DONALD TRUMP RECOGNIZES US BY ELIMINATING
01:33:09 THE DACA PROGRAM.
01:33:12 I HAVE TO SAY AND IT HURTS ME TO SAY THIS, BUT THIS WAS A CLEAR
01:33:19 RACIST ACT BY THIS PRESIDENT AGAINST US, THE LATINO COMMUNITY.
01:33:24 THE ONLY OUTLET NOW THAT WE HAVE IS TO EXPECT AND HOPE THAT CONGRESS
01:33:28 WILL ACT IN A BIPARTISAN WAY AND BE ABLE TO PASS SOMEWHAT OF A
01:33:36 COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION REFORM, AT LEAST TO PROTECT THE DREAMERS OF
01:33:41 THIS COUNTRY.
01:33:45 >> ALDERMAN MORENO.
01:33:46 >> THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT, THANK YOU FOR THIS RESOLUTION AS WELL AS
01:33:49 THE CAUCUS AND ALL THE MEMBERS THAT SIGNED ON.
01:33:53 I MAD THE PLEASURE OF GOING TO ELLIS ISLAND WITH MY 14 YEAR-OLD
01:33:58 DOUBTER, WE DID THE WALKING TOUR AND THEY'RE DONE WITH THE RENOVATION
01:34:03 THERE, THE WALKING TOUR IS FASCINATING AND I WOULD ENCOURAGE ANYONE
01:34:06 WHO HASN'T DONE THAT TO DO THAT, I THOUGHT I KNEW A LOT ABOUT ELLIS
01:34:13 ISLAND.
01:34:14 BETWEEN 1852 AND 1954, WE PUT 12 MILLION
01:34:15 IMMIGRANTS THROUGH ELLIS ISLAND
01:34:19 AND WHAT I WAS REALLY SHOCKED TO LEARN IS OF THE 12 MILLION AND THE
01:34:23 SAFEGUARDS THEY HAD TO KEEP CRIMINALS OUT, TO KEEP THE SICK OUT WAS
01:34:29 2%, ONLY 240 THOUSAND PEOPLE OF THOSE 12 MILLION DIDN'T COME THROUGH,
01:34:33 AND WHEN THOSE ON THE RIDE AND OTHERS SAID, MY ANCESTORS CAME HERE
01:34:43 LEGALLY, WE LAD A SYSTEM SET UP IN 1852 THROUGH 1952 THAT WORKED
01:34:49 WELL, WITHOUT THE TECHNOLOGY THAT WE HAVE TODAY.
01:34:52 WE NEED TO SET UP ELLIS ISLAND SOUTHWEST BECAUSE THAT'S WHERE THE
01:34:57 FLOW IS NOW, THE IRISH WENT THROUGH ALDERMAN BURKE, THE JEWISH PEOPLE
01:35:06 WENT THROUGH MR. MAYOR, AFRICANS CAME THROUGH, THERE'S NOTHING
01:35:10 DIFFERENT THAN PEOPLE FROM MEXICO AND OTHER LATIN AMERICANS COMING
01:35:13 THROUGH, THANK YOU.
01:35:21 >> ALDERMAN VILLEGAS.
01:35:22 >> THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT, THE REPEAL OF DACA IS NOTHING MORE THAN
01:35:30 POLITICAL PANDERING FOR A PRESIDENT THAT HAS RECORD LOW APPROVAL
01:35:34 RATINGS, ANY ELECTED OFFICIAL THAT'S WILLING TO PLAY POLITICS WITH
01:35:39 PEOPLE'S LIVES IS A LEADER THAT WE SHOULD RESIST, ENDING DACA IS
01:35:43 WRONG ON MANY LEVELS BUT DEVASTATE THE ECONOMY THAT PRESIDENT OBAMA
01:35:54 WAS SUCCESSFUL IN CREATING, IT WOULD COST SO MUCH TO REHIRE AND FIRE
01:36:01 THESE [INAUDIBLE] UNDER THE PRESIDENT'S PRESS PERSON, I SAW HER
01:36:05 REPORT YESTERDAY, SHE WAS TALKING MORE ABOUT ECONOMICS AND HOW SOME
01:36:09 OF THESE JOBS ARE BEING TAKEN AWAY FROM NATURAL BORN CITIZENS AND
01:36:15 REPLACED WITH DACA AND I WOULD SAY THAT THERE'S ECONOMISTS OUT THERE
01:36:20 THAT SHOW THAT'S NOT TRUE.
01:36:21 AND I WOULD ALSO SAY THAT RIGHT NOW AS WE SPEAK, WE HAVE DACA FOLKS
01:36:26 RIGHT NOW DEFENDING THIS COUNTRY.
01:36:29 THEY PUT THE UNIFORM ON AND ARE DEFENDING THIS COUNTRY BECAUSE THEY
01:36:32 WANT TO BE A PART OF THIS GREAT COUNTRY.
01:36:35 SO, THAT'S ONE JOB THAT'S AVAILABLE RIGHT NOW THAT I DON'T SEE MANY
01:36:40 PEOPLE APPLYING FOR, THE JOB OF SERVING THIS COUNTRY, PUTTING ON A
01:36:44 UNIFORM AND MAKING SURE THAT THIS IS A GREAT COUNTRY.
01:36:46 THE PRESIDENT HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO PUT THAT -- APPLY FOR THAT JOB,
01:36:52 HE CHOSE NOT TO BECAUSE HIS FOOT HURT, OKAY, AND I WOULD SAY THAT
01:36:57 RIGHT NOW WE HAVE TO STAND UP AND RESIST, RESIST THIS BECAUSE THIS IS
01:37:03 WRONG.
01:37:04 THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT.
01:37:05 >> ALDERMAN RAMIREZ-ROSA.
01:37:09 >> THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT.
01:37:11 I THINK WE JUST WITNESSED RIGHT NOW HOW WORDS CAN DIVIDE, HOW WORDS
01:37:20 CAN BE USED TO SEPARATE US AND WE'VE SEEN THAT ON DISPLAY FROM THE
01:37:26 [INAUDIBLE] SUPPOSED TO BE THE LEADER OF OUR NATION, PRESIDENT DONALD
01:37:31 TRUMP.
01:37:32 ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL, HE SAW TO DIVIDE PEOPLE BASED UPON BACKGROUND
01:37:37 AND RACE AND RELIGION, HE SOUGHT TO SEPARATE US AND DIVIDE US.
01:37:46 AND YESTERDAY HE FOLLOWED UP THAT HATEFUL RHETORIC WITH ACTION.
01:37:54 WHAT DO WE DO IN THIS FACE OF THAT RHETORIC?
01:37:57 WHAT DO WE DO IN THE FACE OF THAT ACTION?
01:38:01 I THINK WHAT WE SAW YESTERDAY IN FEDERAL [INAUDIBLE] WAS AN EXAMPLE OF
01:38:06 WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE, WE COME TOGETHER, WE BUILD A DIVERSE
01:38:10 COALITION, WE SPEAK WITH ONE ANOTHER ABOUT THE STRUGGLES THAT WE'RE
01:38:14 FACING WHICH EVEN THOUGH THEY'RE NOT EXACTLY THE SAME OFTENTIMES SHOW
01:38:17 THE WAY IN WHICH WE ARE HURT BY THOSE THAT HAVE POWER AND THOSE THAT
01:38:22 WANT TO KEEP US DIVIDED.
01:38:23 I AM HOPEFUL THAT THE RHETORIC THAT WE ARE USING HERE TODAY, THAT THE
01:38:33 LANGUAGE WE ARE USING HERE TODAY ABOUT BRINGING PEOPLE TOGETHER IS
01:38:37 MEANT WITH ACTION OF OUR OWN, I SUPPORT THIS RESOLUTION BECAUSE IT IS
01:38:41 EXTREMELY IMPORTANT THAT WE USE OUR WORDS, THAT WE USE OUR PULPIT TO
01:38:47 DEMONSTRATE WHO ARE AS A CITY AND WHO WE ARE AS LEADERS, BUT MUCH
01:38:53 MORE IMPORTANT THAN THAT IS THAT WE MEET DONALD TRUMP'S ACTION WITH
01:38:58 OUR OWN AND THAT IS WHY IT'S MY HOPE THAT AS A BODY, WE WILL MEET
01:39:03 THIS RHETORIC WITH ACTION, MOVE FORWARD ON REMOVING THE CARVE OUTS
01:39:06 FROM THE WELCOMING CITY ORDINANCE SO WE ARE TRULY A SANCTUARY CITY
01:39:10 THAT PROTECTS EVERYONE, THAT WE MOVE FORWARD WITH ADDRESSING ABUSES
01:39:14 OCCURRING AGAINST BLACK PEOPLE BY THE POLICE SO WE ARE TRULY A
01:39:19 SANCTUARY CITY FOR EVERYONE WHO'S PROTECTING EVERYONE AND I'M HOPEFUL
01:39:21 THAT MANY OF YOU WILL SIGN ON TO THE ORDINANCE THAT ALDERMAN MELL
01:39:26 THAT'S DISTRIBUTING TODAY THAT WILL PROTECT IMMIGRANTS FROM RAIDS AND
01:39:30 STRENGTHEN THE PROTECTION FOR TENANTS BY ENSURING THE LANDLORDS
01:39:34 CANNOT ALLOW INDIVIDUALS INTO BUILDINGS WITHOUT A JUDICIAL WARRANT.
01:39:37 THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
01:39:38 >> ALDERMAN SMITH?
01:39:40 >> THANK YOU FOR BRINGING UP THIS
01:39:42 IMPORTANT RESOLUTION.
01:39:43 I REPRESENT A LARGE PORTION OF DE PAUL UNIVERSITY AND I'VE MET WITH
01:39:48 MANY OF THESE YOUNG PEOPLE WHO ARE DREAMERS, WHO ARE RIGHT NOW
01:39:55 ACHIEVING ONE OF THE ESSENTIAL MISSIONS OF DE PAUL UNIVERSITY WHICH
01:40:00 IS TO EDUCATE THE CHILDREN OF THOSE WHO ARE THE FIRST OF THEIR FAMILY
01:40:03 TO GO TO COLLEGE AND TO THINK THAT OUR GOVERNMENT WANTS TO TAKE AWAY
01:40:09 THE ABILITY OF OUR COUNTRY TO MAKE PROGRESS BECAUSE OF THE
01:40:14 CONTRIBUTIONS OF THESE COLLEGE GRADUATES IS APPALLING, AND INDEED I
01:40:20 THINK IT'S UN-AMERICAN AND AS A DAUGHTER OF IMMIGRANTS WHO CAME TO
01:40:24 THE UNITED STATES AT A TIME WHEN THERE WERE VIRTUALLY NO LIMITATIONS
01:40:29 ON IMMIGRATION, IT IS OUTRAGEOUS THAT WE HAVE TO DO THIS TODAY AND I
01:40:33 JUST WANTED TO ADD MY VOICE AND HOPE THAT I CAN BE ADDED AS A
01:40:37 CO-SPONSOR TO THE RESOLUTION.
01:40:39 THANK YOU.
01:40:41 >> ALDERMAN CARDENAS.
01:40:43 >> THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT, I TOO JOIN THIS RESOLUTION, BACK IN 2006
01:40:48 WHEN THE REALITIES FOR IMMIGRATION REFORM FIRST STARTED WAS IN BACK
01:40:53 OF THE ARTS, THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE CAME OUT INTO THE LIGHT AND IT
01:40:59 SCARED A LOT OF PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY UNFORTUNATELY.
01:41:03 IT IS A REALITY WE FACED PROBABLY THE LAST COUPLE OF DECADES HAVING
01:41:11 A SYSTEM THAT LEAVES THEM UNPROTECTED, MANY EXPLOITING THEM IN
01:41:18 VARIOUS WAYS, IT'S A CAPITAL SYSTEM THAT FAVORS SOME, HURTS OTHERS.
01:41:25 THIS RESOLUTION HOPEFULLY TACKLES SOME OF THE THINGS THAT SHOULD HAVE
01:41:29 BEEN TACKLED MANY YEARS AGO AND WE AS DEMOCRATS OUGHT TO TAKE STOCK
01:41:35 IN THE FACT THAT WE PLAY PART INTO THIS BY NOT PASSING IMMIGRATION
01:41:41 REFORM WHEN WE HAD A CHANCE WHEN WE HAD THE NUMBERS AND WE HAD THE
01:41:47 POWER.
01:41:48 NATIONALISTS ARE NOW IN THE WHITE HOUSE ATTACKING OUR VALUES AND
01:41:56 BRINGS DOWN A SYSTEM THAT IS TRULY AMERICAN.
01:42:00 I CAME AS AN IMMIGRANT MANY, MANY YEARS AGO AND I DID NOT HESITATE TO
01:42:08 ENLIST IN THE UNITED STATES NAVY SOMETHING THAT PROBABLY MANY
01:42:15 NATIONALISTS HAVE NOT DONE SO.
01:42:19 I WAS NOT BORN IN THIS COUNTRY, BUT I TOOK IT AS MY OWN AND I WAS
01:42:25 WILLING TO DEFEND IT AND DIE BY IT AND FOR IT IF NECESSARY.
01:42:33 AND MANY OF THESE DACA RECIPIENTS ARE IN THE SAME POSITION, THIS IS
01:42:39 THEIR COUNTRY, JUST LIKE A LOT OF US THAT WERE IN THE NATIVE TO THIS
01:42:46 COUNTRY HAVE MADE IT OUR OWN AND MADE A MARK ON IT.
01:42:53 MANY THINGS AND MANY LEGISLATIVE BAND-AIDS HAVE BEEN PROPOSED AND
01:42:55 HAVE BEEN DONE THROUGHOUT THE YEARS AND THE CHICKENS HAVE COME HOME
01:43:04 TO ROOST UNFORTUNATELY, WE ARE NOW IN A SITUATION WHERE WE HAVE TO
01:43:10 FEAR EVERYONE AROUND US, THESE YOUNG PEOPLE NOW FEAR EVERYONE THEY
01:43:15 HAVE CONTACT WITH, THEY'RE IN TOUCH WITH, THEY'RE AFRAID OF THEIR
01:43:19 SYSTEM, THEY'RE AFRAID OF THE LEGAL COMMUNITY, OF POLICE, OF FIRE, IT
01:43:25 IS A SHAME THAT WE LIVE IN SUCH AN ENVIRONMENT.
01:43:33 SO, I CALL ON NOT JUST THIS COUNCIL, ON ALL OTHERS THAT LISTEN AND
01:43:38 THEY CAN LISTEN, THEY HAVE A HEART, THEY LEAVE IN THE VALUES OF THIS
01:43:45 COUNTRY, NOT JUST TALK TO RHETORIC AND I SAID IT IN THE SPEECH
01:43:50 YESTERDAY BECAUSE I BELIEVED IT WHEN I FIRST GOT HERE AS AN
01:43:54 IMMIGRANT, WENT TO SCHOOL, DID MY PART, BEHAVED, STUDIED, EDUCATED
01:44:01 AND SERVED IN THE MILITARY.
01:44:07 I BELIEVE IN WHAT IT SAYS, A UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
01:44:14 I BELIEVED IT THEN, I BELIEVE IT NOW AND I HOPE THAT EVERYONE TAKES
01:44:23 STOCK AND DOESN'T HIDE JUST BECAUSE THEY HAPPEN TO BE IN A GOOD SPOT
01:44:28 AND THEY HAPPEN TO HAVE THE GOOD FORTUNES OF LIVING GOOD, EARNING GOOD
01:44:38 , BECAUSE IT ALSO CAN HAPPEN TO THEM AND TO US.
01:44:44 WE FIGHT FOR THE LIBERTY, WE FIGHT FOR THE VALUES OF THIS COUNTRY AND
01:44:50 WE SHOULD NOT STOP AND THIS IS A TIME NOT TO HIDE.
01:44:56 CONGRESSIONAL LEADERS, MANY WHO HAVE BEEN THERE MANY DECADES KNOW THE
01:45:01 BATTLE, THEY MUST DO THE RIGHT THING.
01:45:05 CONGRESS MUST ACT, BOTH DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS, TO REFLECT WHAT
01:45:13 THIS COUNTRY'S ALL ABOUT, A UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
01:45:18 THANK YOU.
01:45:19 >> ALDERMAN ARENA.
01:45:21 >> THANK YOU, MADAM PRESIDENT, I TOO RISE IN SUPPORT OF THIS
01:45:27 RESOLUTION AND I FIND IT WATCHING THE NEWS COVERAGE OVER THE LAST 24
01:45:35 HOURS AND EVEN PRIOR TO THAT AS THE RUN-UP TO THIS LOOKING AT SOME OF
01:45:40 THE DATA AND THE NUMBERS AND THE FOCUS ON IMMIGRANTS FROM SOUTH OF
01:45:47 OUR BORDER, AND HOW WRONG HEADED THAT IS AND HOW PATENTLY RACIST THAT
01:45:54 ASSESSMENT IS, THAT THIS IS A PROBLEM THAT COMES FROM THE SOUTH OF
01:45:59 THE BORDER, THAT IMMIGRANTS COMING FROM SOUTH OF THE BORDER ARE
01:46:02 SOMEHOW A DETRIMENT TO OUR COUNTRY.
01:46:04 I MEAN, OBVIOUSLY THE DACA REGISTERED FOLKS IS 800 THOUSAND, OUR
01:46:15 FOLKS WHO WERE BROUGHT HERE, WHO WERE BROUGHT UP HERE, WHO ARE OUR
01:46:21 NEIGHBORS.
01:46:22 I FIND IT AMAZING THAT THE CONVERSATION DOESN'T AT SOME POINT FOCUS
01:46:26 ON THE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF EASTERN EUROPEANS, IRISH, POLISH,
01:46:35 PREDOMINANTLY WHITE, FOLKS WHO ARE HERE ILLEGALLY, OVERSTAYED VISAS
01:46:41 AND WORK VISAS, HOW THAT GETS SET ASIDE, HOW THOSE COMMUNITIES DON'T
01:46:49 FEEL THE THREAT THAT OUR HISPANIC COMMUNITIES FEEL.
01:46:54 OVER THIS WEEKEND FOR THE 31ST TIME IN A ROW, WE FACED FACE TO
01:47:08 PAULOWNIA AND NOBODY WAS WORRIED ABOUT THEM WHEN POLISH AMERICANS AND
01:47:12 THEIR FRIENDS AND FAMILIES WERE GETTING TOGETHER TO ENJOY THE END OF
01:47:17 THE SUMMER.
01:47:18 FOLKS GOING INTO THE IRISH AMERICAN CENTER WHERE 50 THOUSAND IS
01:47:26 ESTIMATED IRISH ARE HERE ILLEGALLY.
01:47:29 ARE THEY WORRIED ABOUT ICE AGENTS COMING INTO THAT BUILDING?
01:47:35 NO.
01:47:36 NO, THE FOCUS IS ON COMMUNITIES OF COLOR, SO AS WE TALK ABOUT THIS
01:47:46 AND SEE THE COMMENTS ON LINE AND PEOPLE SAYING, THEY SHOULD JUST DO
01:47:51 THIS THE RIGHT WAY.
01:47:53 WELL, THE RIGHT WAY WOULD BE FOR THE LAW THAT THEY SAY SHOULD BE
01:47:57 APPLIED, SHOULD BE APPLIED EQUALLY IF YOU WERE GOING TO DO IT THE
01:48:03 RIGHT WAY.
01:48:04 AND IF YOU'RE GOING TO DO IT THE RIGHT WAY, YOU'RE GOING TO TELL
01:48:07 THESE FOLKS WHO HAVE GROWN UP HERE AND HAVE BEEN PART OF OUR LIVES
01:48:12 AND OUR ECONOMY TO GO BACK TO A COUNTRY, SAY IT'S MEXICO, WORKED --
01:48:23 WHERE ONLY 20 CAN IMMIGRATE PROPERLY UNDER THE CURRENT LAW, 20
01:48:28 THOUSAND, THIS IS THE PROBLEM THAT WE HAVE, THAT -- I THINK ANY ONE
01:48:34 OF THEM WOULD WANT TO EMIGRATE HERE ILLEGALLY, BUT TO WAIT 20 YEARS
01:48:40 TO RETURN TO THE COUNTRY THAT YOU GREW UP IN, THAT YOU CALL HOME,
01:48:43 THAT YOU CALL YOURSELF AN AMERICAN?
01:48:46 THESE ARE THE NUMBERS THAT ARE REAL AND TO HAVE A PRESIDENT THAT
01:48:54 THINKS THAT SOMEHOW HE'S DOING A SERVICE FOR US BY FLIP FLOPPING ON
01:49:02 THIS ISSUE SAYING HE LOVES THEM AND WE'RE GOING TO USE OUR HEART,
01:49:07 WELL, I KNOW ONE THING, HIS HEART'S A BLACK LUMP OF COAL IF THAT'S
01:49:12 WHAT HE SAYS IS COMING OUT OF HIS HEART, THAT THAT THIS IS THE ANSWER
01:49:16 TO A PROBLEM THAT DOESN'T EXIST.
01:49:20 SO, I'M PROUD WE'RE HERE HAVING THIS DISCUSSION, THAT WE'RE SPEAKING
01:49:24 OPENLY ABOUT WHAT IS NOT RIGHT AND WHAT IS THE RIGHT WAY THAT WE
01:49:27 SHOULD BE DOING THIS.
01:49:30 WHEN PRESIDENT OBAMA PASSED THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER, IT WAS BECAUSE
01:49:34 CONGRESS WOULDN'T ACT AND WOULDN'T ACT ON THE VERY ISSUE THAT THERE
01:49:39 WAS COMMON GROUND THAT THESE PARTICULAR INDIVIDUALS, THESE 800
01:49:45 THOUSAND HAD BEEN BROUGHT HERE, HAD GROWN UP HERE, THAT CONGRESS
01:49:49 COULD AGREE ON THIS BUT IT WAS POLITICS THAT STOPPED THIS FROM
01:49:54 BECOMING LAW 8 YEARS AGO, AND HE TOOK BOLD ACTION TO SAY THIS IS WHO
01:50:00 WE SHOULD PROTECT AND MAYBE GIVE US AN OPPORTUNITY TO START AND RALLY
01:50:05 AROUND THESE INDIVIDUALS AND THEN FIGURE OUT HOW DO WE CREATE AN
01:50:10 EQUITABLE IMMIGRATION POLICY IN THIS COUNTRY.
01:50:14 SO, WE SHALL SEE WHAT CONGRESS WILL DO IN THE NEXT SIX MONTHS WHEN
01:50:18 THEY'VE BEEN ABLE TO DO VERY LITTLE WHEN IT COMES TO THIS PRESIDENT'S
01:50:24 POLICIES.
01:50:25 HOPEFULLY THEY WILL BE THE BIGGER MEN AND WOMEN IN THE ROOM AND DO
01:50:28 THE RIGHT THING FOR THIS COUNTRY AND FOR THESE DREAMERS.
01:50:35 THANK YOU.
01:50:36 >> ALDERMAN OSTERMAN.
01:50:39 >> I TOO WANT TO BE SIGNED ON AS A CO-SPONSOR TO THIS, I RECOMMEND WE
01:50:47 COME IN HALF AN HOUR EARLY FOR CITY COUNCIL AND TALK ABOUT THE
01:50:51 HATEFUL POLICIES COMING OUT OF THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION BECAUSE I
01:50:56 HAVE A FEELING WE'LL BE DOING THIS OFTEN, BUT I'M AMAZED THAT WITH
01:51:01 ALL THAT'S GOING ON IN THE WORLD THAT THIS PRESIDENT SEEKS TO DIVIDE
01:51:06 US AGAIN.
01:51:08 WE'VE GOT FLOODING IN TEXAS, WE'VE GOT HURRICANES COMING, WE'VE GOT
01:51:13 NATIONAL SECURITY TREATING -- THREATS BUT HE WANTS TO PICK ON
01:51:19 INNOCENT CHILDREN WHO WERE BROUGHT HERE BY THEIR PARENTS.
01:51:22 MY GOOD FRIEND AND COLLEAGUE FROM THE FIRST WARD GOT HIS HISTORY A
01:51:27 LITTLE BIT WRONG TALKING ABOUT HOW MANY AFRICAN AMERICANS COME, HE
01:51:30 DIDN'T DO IT OUT OF SPITE, HE GOT CAUGHT UP WHEN HE SPOKE, BUT THE
01:51:36 REALITY IS MOST OF THEM CAME ON SLAVE BOATS, BUT TODAY, WE HAVE
01:51:42 IMMIGRANTS AND REFUGEES THAT ARE COMING FROM WAR TORN AFRICAN
01:51:47 COUNTRIES AND THEY CHOOSE TO SETTLE IN A PLACE LIKE CHICAGO AND WE
01:51:51 HAVE HISPANICS WHO COME HERE HOPING FOR A BETTER WAY OF LIFE AND THEY
01:51:57 BRING THEIR KIDS AND THAT BLACK CHILD AND THE BROWN CHILD ARE IN
01:52:04 CHICAGO CLASSROOMS, THEY ARE IN OUR NEIGHBORHOODS AND ALL THEY WANT,
01:52:08 ALL THEIR PARENTS WANT IS A BETTER WAY OF LIFE.
01:52:11 THEY WANT TO CONTRIBUTE, THEY WANT TO WORK, THEY WANT TO EDUCATE
01:52:15 THEMSELVES.
01:52:16 THEY WANT TO JOIN THE MILITARY, THEY WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN
01:52:21 THEIR LIVES AND ALL OF THEM HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO THE GREAT CITY THAT
01:52:28 THEY HAVE AND THEY DO SO EVERY SINGLE DAY.
01:52:31 THE PRESIDENT TALKS ABOUT VIOLENCE AND HE TRIES TO PIT THE VIOLENCE
01:52:35 THAT SEE ON CERTAIN FOLKS, WE'VE SEEN THE VIOLENCE AND IT
01:52:44 COMES FROM CERTAIN SOURCES, AND WHAT HE CHOOSES TO DO IS DIVIDE US,
01:52:48 HE DID IT FOR POLITICAL REASONS, HE DID IT FOR RACIAL REASONS, HE DID
01:52:52 IT SO HE COULD TELL PEOPLE HE'S DOING SOMETHING WHEN HE'S NOT DOING
01:52:56 ANYTHING.
01:52:57 AND IT IS FOR US TO CONSTANTLY RESIST HIS EFFORTS AND TALK ABOUT IT.
01:53:03 IT'S IMPORTANT FOR US IN OUR COMMUNITIES TO TELL FAMILIES AS THE
01:53:08 MAYOR DID YESTERDAY, FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL, THAT WE'RE GOING TO BE
01:53:13 THERE TO SUPPORT THOSE FAMILIES BECAUSE THEY ARE PART OF CHICAGO AND
01:53:17 THEY SHOULD NOT BE ISOLATED, SO I'M PROUD THAT WE'RE DOING THIS TODAY.
01:53:21 I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT FOR ALL OF US, THIS PRESIDENT CHOOSES TO
01:53:26 CONTINUALLY SEEK TO DIVIDE US AND IT'S UP TO US TO CONTINUE TO TRY TO
01:53:31 BRING US TOGETHER AND STAY TOGETHER.
01:53:33 THANK YOU.

02:01:49 CALL FOR OUR ASSEMBLY TO SIGN INTO LAW ILLINOIS HEALTH BILL 40 WHICH
02:01:57 IS ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION.
02:01:58 >> THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT.
02:02:04 WHEN CLERK ANNA VALENCIA AND I SPOKE REGARDING THIS RESOLUTION, I
02:02:07 JUMPED AT THE CHANCE TO BE A CO-SPONSOR BECAUSE I BELIEVED THAT IT'S
02:02:14 FUNDAMENTALLY A WOMEN'S RIGHT TO MAKE DECISIONS ABOUT HER BODY AND
02:02:19 PERSONAL HEALTH CARE INCLUDING DECISIONS ABOUT HER REPRODUCTIVE
02:02:24 HEALTH.
02:02:25 WOMEN ACROSS ILLINOIS AND CHICAGO HAVE ADVOCATED, ORGANIZED AND
02:02:31 MARCHED IN SUPPORT OF HOUSE BILL 40.
02:02:34 I HAVE JOINED THEM IN CHICAGO AND HAVE JOINED THEM IN SPRINGFIELD
02:02:40 DEMANDING THAT OUR RIGHT TO ACCESS REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH CARE INCLUDING
02:02:47 ABORTIONS BE UPHELD, EVEN IN THE FACE OF THREATS BY DONALD TRUMP TO
02:02:53 APPOINT SUPREME COURT JUSTICES OPEN TO REVERSING RHO V. WADE, WE ALSO
02:02:59 DEMAND AND CONTINUE TO PUSH GOVERNOR RAUNER TO SIGN THIS IMPORTANT
02:03:04 BILL TO PROTECT THE WOMEN OF ILLINOIS, WHETHER THEY ARE COVERED BY
02:03:10 PRIVATE INSURANCE OR MEDICATE OR STATE EMPLOYEE HEALTH INSURANCE, WE
02:03:17 DEMAND OUR RIGHT THAT IT IS OUR RIGHT, A WOMEN'S RIGHT TO CHOOSE TO
02:03:23 BE HONORED AND THE CITY COUNCIL TODAY TO URGE THE ILL NAY GENERAL
02:03:28 ASSEMBLY TO SEND HOUSE BILL 40 TO THE GOVERNOR AND HE SHOULD SIGN
02:03:33 THIS LEGISLATION WITHOUT HESITATION POST HASTE IMMEDIATELY.
02:03:39 ANNA, WE WANT TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR LEADERSHIP ON THIS IMPORTANT
02:03:43 ISSUE AND I LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING WITH YOU MORE ON THIS CAMPAIGN
02:03:48 AND, MR. PRESIDENT, I MOVE THAT CLERK VALENCIA BE GRANTED THE
02:03:51 PRIVILEGE OF THE FLOOR TO MAKE A FEW REMARKS ON THIS IMPORTANT ISSUE.
02:03:55 >> HEARING NO OBJECTIONS, SO ORDERED.
02:03:59 >> THANK YOU ALDERMAN DOWELL FOR YOUR PARTNERSHIP, I WANT TO THANK
02:04:08 SARAH FIGENHOLD, HER TREMENDOUS LEADERSHIP IN SPRINGFIELD AND
02:04:14 [INAUDIBLE] FROM PLANNED PARENTHOOD.
02:04:20 [APPLAUSE].
02:04:21 I'M VERY HONORED TO BE ABLE TO STAND HERE TODAY AS A WOMAN, A CITY
02:04:25 CLERK AND AS A LATINA TO SPEAK HERE IF MANY WOMEN WHO ARE HURTING AND
02:04:33 TERRIFIED OF WHAT'S COMING NEXT.
02:04:35 EVERY SINGLE DAY THE PRESIDENT SAYS SOMETHING THAT TERRORIZES,
02:04:38 INTIMIDATES AND THREATENS THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, HIS RECENT DECISION
02:04:41 ON WHO CAN AND CANNOT SERVE IN OUR MILITARY, MUSLIM BAN, HIS REMARKS
02:04:47 ON THE WAKE OF CHARLOTTESVILLE, THROUGH THE ENDING OF DACA ARE CLEAR
02:04:53 INDICATION THAT NO ONE IS SAFE AND IT IS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE
02:04:56 WE ARE NEXT.
02:04:58 YESTERDAY THE MAYOR DECLARED OUR SCHOOLS AND OUR CITY A TRUMP-FREE
02:05:01 ZONE.
02:05:02 WELL, TODAY I TELL THIS PRESIDENT, MY BODY IS A TRUMP-FREE ZONE.
02:05:10 [APPLAUSE].
02:05:11 THE PRESIDENT'S RECENT DANGEROUS POLICY DECISIONS SHOWS NO ONE IS
02:05:13 SAFE AND WE ARE NEXT AND AS PUBLIC SERVANTS, WE MUST PROTECT THE
02:05:19 MOST VULNERABLE PEOPLE, I STAND BEFORE YOU NOT ONLY AS CITY CLERK BUT
02:05:23 AS A WOMAN, AS A LATINO THAT HAS THE LUXURY OF MAKING PERSONAL HEALTH
02:05:29 DECISIONS BETWEEN ME AND MY HUSBAND, HOWEVER MANY WOMEN ACROSS OUR
02:05:35 CITY AND OUR STATE ESPECIALLY WOMEN OF COLOR, ESPECIALLY WOMEN OF
02:05:38 COLOR, DO NOT HAVE THE LUXURY BECAUSE THE GOVERNOR HAS YET TO SIGN
02:05:44 HB40 INTO LAW, WE CANNOT FIGHT FOR ECONOMIC QUALITY BEFORE FIGHTING
02:05:48 FOR REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS.
02:05:51 HB40 WILL ALLOW WOMEN REGARDLESS OF THEIR INSURANCE PLAN TO MAKE
02:05:55 DECISIONS ABOUT THEIR OWN HEALTH CARE AND FLAN FOR A FAMILY ON THEIR
02:06:00 OWN TERMS.
02:06:01 HB40 WILL PROTECT ALL ILLINOIS'S WOMEN'S RIGHTS TO SEE THAT RHO V.
02:06:09 WADE IS TURNED AND WE ARE ONE AWAY FROM THAT DECISION, IF YOU DON'T
02:06:14 THINK IT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU, IT CAN.
02:06:16 WE MUST ACT NOW, WE CAN NOTED TRUST THIS PRESIDENT AND CANNOT TRUST
02:06:20 THIS GOVERNOR.
02:06:21 HE HAS LIED, HE HAS SAT SILENT FOR OUR UNDOCUMENTED COMMUNITY AND
02:06:25 IMMIGRANTS AND HE WILL SIT SILENT ON THIS.
02:06:27 TODAY WE CALL ON YOU, GOVERNOR, TO SIGN HB40 INTO LAW, THERE IS AN
02:06:33 URGENT ISSUE, THERE'S NO TIME TO WASTE.
02:06:35 THANK YOU.
02:06:36 >> THANK YOU.
02:06:41 >> WE NOW GO TO COMMITTEE REPORTS, ALDERMAN SMITH, I'M SORRY, I
02:06:47 DIDN'T SEE YOU.
02:06:48 >> I WANT TO BE RECOGNIZED AS ONE OF THE CO-SPONSORED OF THIS VERY
02:06:54 IMPORTANT RESOLUTION.
02:06:55 THESE ARE VERY UNCERTAIN TIMES, MANY OF THE VALUES THAT WE HOLD DEAR
02:07:00 IN THIS CITY ARE BEING CHALLENGED AND CLERK VALENCIA REGRETTABLY
02:07:05 LISTED A LAUNDRY LIST OF THE HORRIBLE THINGS THAT ARE HAPPENING TO
02:07:09 WHAT SEEMS TO BE EVERY GROUP IN THE COUNTRY, SO WE NOW -- ILLINOIS
02:07:14 HAS LONG BEEN KNOWN TO BE A PRO CHOICE STATE AND I PARTICULARLY LIKE
02:07:21 TO THANK TERRY COSGROVE AND PERFECT PANTING TO MAKE THAT THE CASE,
02:07:27 BUT WHAT YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW, WHAT MY COLLEAGUES MIGHT NOT KNOW IS THAT
02:07:32 ILLINOIS MIGHT NOT BE A PRO CHOICE STATE FOR LONG, AND THAT IS
02:07:39 BECAUSE IN 1975, WHICH I HAVE A FEELING IS BEFORE SOME OF OUR
02:07:44 COLLEAGUES WERE BORN, YEAH, ESPECIALLY YOU, ALDERMAN HAIRSTON,
02:07:50 ILLINOIS PASSED A LAW IN THE WAKE OF RHO V. WADE AND THAT LAW SAID IF
02:07:56 RHO V. WADE IS EVER OVERTURNED, ILLINOIS WILL GO BACK TO THE WAY IT
02:08:02 WAS BEFORE RHO V. WADE CAME DOWN WHICH WAS AN ANTI-CHOICE STATE WHERE
02:08:09 ABORTION WAS ILLEGAL.
02:08:12 NOW, THIS IS A WRONG THAT HAS BEEN LAID DORMANT IN ILLINOIS BECAUSE
02:08:16 WE HAD PRESIDENTS AND GOVERNORS WHO SUPPORTED CHOICE, BUT NOW WE HAVE
02:08:22 A PRESIDENT WHO AS ALDERMAN DOWELL SAID MAY SEEK TO OVERTURN THAT
02:08:28 DECISION.
02:08:29 SO, UNDERWEAR THE FEARLESS LEADERSHIP OF ONE OF MY STATE REPS, SARAH
02:08:35 FIGENHOTZ, A LAW WAS PASSED, HB40 THAT HAS DONE TWO THINGS, ONE, IT
02:08:41 SETS ILLINOIS LAW RIGHT TO MAKE THE STANDARD OF RHO V. WADE THE LAW
02:08:45 OF ILLINOIS NOW AND FOREVER AND THEN IT FINALLY GRANTS EQUAL ACCESS
02:08:51 TO ABORTION TO WOMEN OF ALL INCOME LEVELS, BY ALLOWING MEDICAID
02:08:59 FUNDING AND THE STATE'S INSURANCE POLICY FOR ITS EMPLOYEES TO COVER
02:09:04 ABORTION JUST LIKE IT DOES HERE IN CHICAGO AND IN COOK COUNTY.
02:09:10 NOW, THESE TWO ITEMS YOU WOULD THINK IN ILLINOIS WOULD NOT BE
02:09:15 CONTROVERSIAL AND THEY SHOULD NOT BE BECAUSE THEN CANDIDATE RAUNER
02:09:19 SAID HE WAS IN SUPPORT OF THESE PROVISIONS, HE SAID IT IN WRITING AND
02:09:23 I WANT TO -- I HOPE THE PRESIDENT WILL INDULGE ME INTO READING INTO
02:09:31 THE REPORT THAT THE GOVERN SAID IN RESPONSE TO THE FOLLOWING
02:09:34 QUESTION, WILL YOU SIGN LEGISLATION REPEALING THE 1975 LAW AND
02:09:39 REPLACING IT WITH A LAW THAT DECISIONS ABOUT REPRODUCTIVE MATTERS ARE
02:09:43 TO BE MADE PRIVATELY BETWEEN A WOMAN AND HER DOCTOR WITHOUT
02:09:48 GOVERNMENTAL INTERFERENCE, ANSWER, YES.
02:09:50 WILL YOU SIGN LEGISLATION RESTORING ABORTION COVERAGE UNDER THE STATE
02:09:54 MEDICAID PLAN AND WILL YOU SIGN LEGISLATION TO RESTORE STATE
02:10:00 EMPLOYEES' HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE FOR ABORTION?
02:10:04 ANSWER, YES, BUT HE SAID MORE THAN THAT, THEN CANDIDATE RAUNER SAID,
02:10:12 IT IS I FUNDAMENTALLY BELIEVE THAT ABORTION SHOULD BE A WOMAN'S
02:10:16 PRIVATE DECISION AND THAT THIS DECISION SHOULD NOT BE IMPEDED BY THE
02:10:20 GOVERNMENT AND THE PRINCIPLES SHOULD APPLY TO ALL WOMEN REGARDLESS OF
02:10:23 INCOME LEVEL OR LOCATION OF RESIDENCY AND FURTHER, I DISLIKE THE
02:10:28 ILLINOIS LAW THAT RESTRICTS ABORTION COVERAGE UNDER THE STATE
02:10:32 MEDICAID PLAN AND STATE EMPLOYEES HEALTH INSURANCE BECAUSE I BELIEVE
02:10:37 IT UNFAIRLY RESTRICTS ACCESS BASED ON INCOME.
02:10:40 I WOULD SUPPORT A LEGISLATIVE EFFORT TO REVERSE THAT LAW, BUT HE DID
02:10:46 EVEN MORE THAN THAT, HE SUPPORTED AN AD TAKEN OUT BY HUNDREDS OF PRO
02:10:52 CHOICE WOMEN WHILE HE WAS RUNNING, ANNOUNCING SUPPORTERS OF CHOICE
02:10:57 SHOULD BE THRILLED THAT BOTH CANDIDATES FOR GOVERNOR ARE PRO CHOICE,
02:11:02 AND THEN IN THE WAKE OF THIS LAW PASSED BY BOTH HOUSES OF OUR
02:11:09 ILLINOIS GENERAL ASSEMBLY, HE SAID HE WOULD VETO IT, RARELY HAVE WE
02:11:15 SEEN SUCH A STARK EXAMPLE IN ILLINOIS OF A POLITICIAN GOING BACK ON
02:11:21 HIS WORD THAT HE MADE TO MILLIONS OF VOTERS.
02:11:29 THE ONLY ETHICAL WAY FORWARD IS FOR GOVERNOR RAUNER TO HONOR HIS WORD
02:11:36 AND TO SIGN THIS BILL WHEN IT COMES BEFORE HIM AND I URGE ALL OF OUR
02:11:40 COLLEAGUES WHO HAVE SIGNED ON TO THIS MEASURE TO LET THEIR
02:11:44 CONSTITUENTS KNOW THAT THE GOVERNOR HAS THE POWER TO GIVE THEM PEACE
02:11:48 OF MINE AND TO SET THE LAW OF ILLINOIS STRAIGHT AND TO URGE GOVERNOR
02:11:55 RAUNER TO SIGN THIS BILL.
02:11:56 THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
02:11:57 >> ALDERMAN CHAPMAN?
02:12:02 >> THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT, I TOO RISE IN SUPPORT OF THIS AS ONE OF
02:12:07 THE CO-SPONSORS AND I'LL MAKE YOU HAPPY AND KEEP IT SHORT.
02:12:10 I WAS 20 YEARS WHEN THE SUPREME COURT MADE THE DECISION ON RHO V.
02:12:16 WADE.
02:12:17 I KNOW WOMEN WHO HAVE HAD BOTCHED ABORTIONS, I KNOW WOMEN WHO HAVE
02:12:22 HAD THE COAT HANGER ABORTIONS IN THE BACK ALLEY.
02:12:24 WE WILL NOT GO BACK TO THOSE DAYS.
02:12:27 WHEN I WAS A FRANCIS CAN FRYER, I GOT IN TROUBLE FOR BEING PRO
02:12:33 CHOICE, BUT IT'S NOT ABOUT MY RIGHT, IT'S ABOUT THE RIGHT OF WOMEN
02:12:36 AND IF WE DO NOT STAND UP FOR THEM, WHO WILL STAND UP FOR US.
02:12:42 THANK YOU.
02:12:43 >> WE NOW GO TO COMMITTEE REPORTS AND I CALL TO ALDERMAN O'CONNOR ON
02:12:48 THE JOINT AVIATION AND WORKFORCE COMMITTEE.
02:13:35 [INAUDIBLE].

02:16:38 THE SUPPORT OF THE BUILDING COMMISSIONER, I DON'T SEE ALDERMAN
02:16:45 CARDENAS HERE RIGHT NOW.
02:16:47 I THOUGHT HE MIGHT WANT TO ADDRESS THIS MATTER, BUT IN THE ABSENCE OF
02:16:54 THE ALDERMAN OF THE 12TH WARD, I WOULD MOVE TO CONCUR ON THE

02:17:36 ENCOMPASSING ALL THE THINGS THAT NEEDED TO BE DONE, WE WORKED
